This photograph is the result of one of those rare moments in life when the subject of your photo seems to be the direct product of his or her environment. I was walking around Toronto one evening when this troubled man walked right across my field of view in front of a wall of graffiti. As soon as I noticed him I could already see the photo. All I had to do was go through the motions of calling out to him and convincing him to let me take his photo. The rest was history.
