B&W Street Photography, Chicago 1969-1970, Street Photography

Shadow to Substance

prowling corners of an argyle alley

a playful voice called from the back…hey tony

it was charlie…the sportive younster’d fixed

his exaggerated shadow on a white dumpster surface

he called to let me in on the antic

and to extend its gist on film

the ten-year old had struck a pose

flexing large black arms at an angle

so that the thrown shadow was a vagrant mix

of african & eastern art
