The Rose Man // Manhattan, NYC

While out wandering (it was 4am at this point), we came across roses strewn across the city sidewalk and in a large dumpster adjacent to the Public Library (West 40th St). While taking photos, this man who was on a smoke break came up behind us to ask what we were photographing (Christian and I explained). Then we had a nice conversation with this gentleman and learned that there had been a wedding inside earlier in the day and he was being paid to help clean up. I made a few portraits of him and eventually headed off. I wish I got his name.
