Cool old homeless guy playing acoustic guitar on the street in Austin, TX Urban decay comprises people as well, because they too crumble, wither and sometimes fade away and disappear without notice. Who is or was this person and what happened in their lives that made them who they are today? When you look closer and see the scars on the side of this man’s face, or all the signatures on the guitar, you begin to wonder. Is this man trying to remember "What once was" through reflection in his music, just as we look at him and ask ourselves the same question...?

Location: Austin, TX USA
