Wandering in the streets of Boston this summer I stumbled on this perspective. A fat man blown up by my fisheye lens contrasting with the monumental graffiti of a crammed personage painted by Brazilian artists Os Gemeos. As if to say that artwork doesn't depict an exaggerated vision of our world after all... or rather that it shows the stark inequalities of available space that people have to live in this world.

Notes: I had to get close to my man on the bench for this shot, but the fisheye's non-obtrusiveness is convenient, subjects often think you're focusing on something way behind them.
