18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
The Other American Dreams

A homeless man adrift In his dreams on the Santa Monica Beach. The world is becoming more divided than ever. In front of me was a homeless man looking for a comfortable spot to lie down. Right next to him was an endless stream of tourists on bikes and scooters. Oxfam just released the latest stats, 26 billionaires has as much wealth as the poorest 1/2 of the world population. The serenity of the sleeping man is like the calm before a tsunami of global unrest is about to be unleashed.
