Street Portrait: The East Village Is Dead
I was on my way down to an exhibit debut at the Eloquent Delinquents gallery and saw this guy standing outside of this dive, Mars Bar, on 2nd Ave and 1st St smoking his cigarette, Just asked if I could take a picture. He said sure and started to walk out of the frame. I said "nah man, with you in it, as you were" - Rami looks exactly like ‘Law & Order’ star Jerry Orbach.
Featured on the Flickr Blog as one of the best shots of 2009 in street photography.
