The Juxtaposition

Women and Homeless Man

My first glance at this scene revealed only the women who were giant and naked except for the shoes. (I didn’t notice the shoes until later…much) It’s a picture that titillates. It’s also a commentary on societies priorities.

I took the picture because at the lower left corner, I saw a homeless man. I was intrigued by the poverty juxtaposed against what I figured was very expensive shoes. (Later research showed they are ridiculously priced at around $400 each so, in this photo, there are $1,200 worth of shoes. It’s amazing at what people will throw money at in the name of fashion.) I doubted the homeless fellow made that during an entire year of panhandling.
