Homeless man walked by our shoot in downtown KC. Didn’t catch his name.

I had a similar response to the picture, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. The short response to your comment is that you’re probably not the kind of person I’m talking about.

I’m talking about the people who want to prescribe some kind of positive attributes to a person they don’t know, just because that person is less fortunate (hate that phrase) than them. People that say this guy is beautiful or probably full of wisdom, or whatever else, just because he’s homeless, or disabled, or poor, or an orphan, or whatever the circumstances in any given situation. It’s pity, at it’s roots, and it’s pity being used to make the more fortunate person feel better about themselves.

It’s people like “voluntourists” or church groups that go to inner city or 3rd world orphanages and come back telling their congregations about the strong, brave, inspirational people they met.

And like I said, there’s a balance, and it’s somewhere in the grey area between over-sentimentality and apathy.
