Working in Downtown Miami I was constantly asked for money and cigarettes at least twice a day. I wanted to change my experience with the homeless that saw me as a walking dollar bill. Sometimes, I would turn my cheek and pretend I didn't hear them, or completely ignore them. This series is an attempt to even the playing field and not feel used or exploited by the Homeless. Every time I was asked for a cigarette, a few dollars, some food etc; I asked them for a portrait. They asked me what I would do with the portrait, and I asked them what they are doing with the dollar. A fair exchange in which I looked forward to being asked for money because I was able to have a new portrait based on their barter system.
