Story behind the photograph
I have noticed this beggar now a few times around Sydney. He seems to be ashamed to show his face and thus he lays down on a pavement covered by a white cotton sheet. I photographed him here near Coles opposite Sydney Town Hall.
If the idea of covering himself in the sheet supposed to raise pity it doesn’t work, as people tend to avoid him and only few people dropped a coin or two. I still believe donating money to organisations which help homeless is a better option.
