“At The
Corner” brings the viewer to the street level, into a
world often ignored. The juxtaposition of the street people
and the capucinno place emphasizes the inequities of
our society. The man laying on the sidewalk is almost a part
of the street, dissolving into the scene as if no one even
notices his presence anymore.
