The photo, called “Feed Me,” has it all.
A poster of skinny model with graffiti that says FEED ME!; a homeless man with a sign that reads HUNGRY; and a banker type walking past with a disparaging look. There’s also a sign on a building in the background that says TRUST and a hot dog truck in the background. All with brilliant composition.
“It’s kind of like catching magic in a bottle,” Sandler says about good photography. “When it’s very lively, it feels like the picture is transcending itself or it’s busting out of the frame. It feels lifelike, you can’t quite contain it, it almost takes on another dimension.”
“What it requires is constantly being out there and constantly shooting and constantly being ready to shoot … so that you’re ready when the moment happens,” he adds.”
