I have been doing a photo story on an alcoholic named
Mike. He is suffering from several ailments that keep him from being
able to work, including degenerative arthritis in his back. Mike
doesn’t like taking pain killers so instead he goes out every morning
and picks bottles and cans. He averages about $10/day which is enough to
buy a 6-pack. Above is an average day for him, picking, going to the
bottle depot, and then buying 6-12 beer.
Mike has an amazing and uplifting story. I have been
working on this as an audio slideshow. You’ll see the finished project
