16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
The Aftermath

This candid photo depicts a man with his Starbucks coffee and unlit cigarette in his mouth. It is not clear what he is feeling, and yet his body language and passive observation of the world in front of him is palpable. It is a shared human experience; to awaken and, despite what has happened yesterday, get a coffee and do what today needs of you.
