a day with Tyler the "Hobbo Folk Singer"







It was sort of random, but Gaby...she says, "I think you should photograph this Kid that's staying with us". So, the next day...I did. It was fun...we roamed all over San Diego looking for cool spots to shoot. I filmed him playing is folk songs down by the Sante Fe Depot...how appropriate as this young Canadian (North American, LOL)...spends much of his life, hopping trains all across North America. At the end of the day, I interviewed the 'whole gang' back at the apartment. The dogs were trying to take over the show, they were fun...then before I left, I filmed/documented their 'dumpster diving' collection in the refrigerator. A feast was to be had!

Amazing depth into the soul of a young man. The look in the first shot, the hat pointing the way to ?...
The second shot, the Loneliness of playing for no-one, just for your self, to eat, to move, to enjoy one minute of someone giving a fuck if you Breathe or not!
The third shot... Breath taking, the angst, the pain, the hunger, truly breath-taking in it's Ability to tell the whole story of todays youth...

Thank you for this.
