A Journey Through My Life


I met Red on Commercial Street in Portland, Maine. Red was in a wheel chair just enjoying the weather and doing some spare changing. He is originally from Concord, New Hampshire and was “dropped off here” 5 years ago. He lives in the Milestone Foundation on India Street. Milestone is an emergency shelter, detoxification, and rehab center licensed by the state. Red says he doesn’t mind it there. “They take good care of me”.

This picture is #23 in my 100 strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at the 100 Strangers Flickr Group page

    I like the way your have captured him in the shadow of his cap…hiding and considering the photographer. Imagine he has some stories he could tell.
