  • The story behind the image:

    The irony of so many items for sale in the background, many of which were unlikely available to him. NYC is unforgiving, but still a mecca for the disenfranchised and impoverished. I never got to hear his story, but I suspect I already knew it.

    "Because of the theme of work and his technical abilities, Peterson's paintings have a timeless symbolic meaning rather than mere appearance of a photograph. While hyper-real in definition, they break from structures of photography as an acceptable simulation of reality - instead creating a sense of loss from personalization and interaction."
