Camden Town Hobo

Camden Town Hobo

April 24th, 2009  |  Published in People & Portraits  |  8 Comments

This guy was sitting on the corner opposite Camden Town tube station in London. I hear he’s a bit of a regular there.  While I waited to get the right shot, two women approached him with food for the puppy - about 10 cans - but not a single morcel for him!

Unfortunately he wasn’t too pleased when he realised I was taking this candid… he grumbled something I won’t repeat here and promptly covered his face with a piece of cardboard.

Maybe one day I will see him again and I can give him this print as a peace offering!
