Omar

Omar is the best dressed homeless person I've ever met. Those of you who live in West Philly know him as a fixture of the Green Line II where he can often be found dispensing advice or, depending on how much he's had to drink, yelling at people. I've been photographing him off and on for a year or so. This was from about 7:00 this morning. He said to me: "I'm sad, I don't want to die, I love life too much." I noticed he'd written on his hand: The end wants you to live the ultimate life.
