This is by far my favorite man to photograph.  He sits outside the entrance to the Tower of the Winds in Athens, Greece and collects money to feed stray cats and dogs.  I first came across him on my semester abroad during the summer of 2006 and spent a few afternoons sitting with him and hearing his life story.  When I visited and later moved back to Greece in 2007 I immediately went and found him again and photographed him on each trip.  This particular photo was taken on my visit in May of 2007.

    This man has a perfect face. What a great subject to photograph. If his life story is half as interesting as his face, then I’m sure you two had some really wonderful conversations.
