RIP Lawnmower-Man

8 1/2 years ago I moved my studio to the East side of downtown Raleigh. It’s not in a good part of town or the bad part, I like to think it’s on the edge. When I moved in I started documenting the people who lived in the area. I'd hang some of the photos in the studio window if I thought they were good. I have 2 small strips of grass around my studio and this man has been cutting them since I moved in. I never knew his name, I just called him the Lawnmower-Man and I think he like it. His picture is in my window. In the past week I’ve had over a dozen people knock on the studio door to tell me he passed away. Rest in peace Lawnmower-Man
