"Crime Scene - Suffocated Man"
TITLE - "Crime Scene - Suffocated Man"
WHERE - Coombs, Vancouver Island, B.C. (2015)
At a strip mall parking lot, I came across this disorienting scene - man slumped in car, apparently with a plastic bag tightened over his head - and other bystanders going to get help. I inferred all of this instantly upon stepping up to the car, which was parked next to mine. Camera in hand, I snapped this shot furtively, compulsively. A moment later, the man stirred. I realized that he had simply been dozing, and that the plastic bag over his head had been an optical illusion from where I stood. Even so, the shock stayed with me.
