I photograph people where their bodies often speak louder then anything else. This time look at this hug, or embrace as I called it. The young man’s muscles are tensed up – this is a genuine hug with passion (at least it looks like it to me). There is none of the too fashionable hug me but don’t touch me posers here.

Young man asleep on stairs


Many of my street photographs show homeless people in Sydney in various situations. However, this young man is not homeless. He is fast asleep courtesy of over indulgence the night before. He was in such deep sleep he almost did not show any vital signs and I had to check he was OK (which he was).
