Photograph: “street talk, NYC” by THE MAN WITH A HAT (username “THE MAN WITH A HAT” on Flickr).

Originally shared on the Photofocus Flickr community right here.

Why I picked this image: Street photography can be a documentary snapshot of the human condition. Besides the fashion of the time we get a historic documentation of how people presented themselves and how they interacted with each other in different cultures and different milieus.

This “street talk, NYC” photo is documenting such an every day moment. A scene of two man talking or arguing in front of a street food vendor in NYC. I can see this image as one of the representative images of our current NYC daily life in 20+ years.
