Christopher was sitting on a bench in downtown Tampa, FL. He was happy to be photographed and crushed out his cigarette first. Originally from California, he graduated from local King High School, and works at adjacent Holy Hog Barbeque. Recently this location was a Quiznos sandwich shop, but he did not work there.
While we spoke, a woman in an apron came into the restaurant doorway and yelled, “Christopher, do you still work here, or you a photography model now?” He sheepishly smiled and scurried inside. As I left, I saw Christopher working the business end of a broom.
