Cold Air

This is one of the many shots I took of my friend Jonny Daniels in Poland earlier this week. This was taken after he had been up for days organizing the events. He was freezing. He was completely spent emotionally. He had just changed his own life radically, and in the process many others.Not that there can be anything funny about a picture taken at Birkanau, but I had taken so many other pictures around Krakow and Warsaw of Jonny smoking - and had decided just to shoot the smoke coming out of his lips - not the cigarettes. In this shot, the smoke is the breath meeting the cold air. I had enough second hand smoke in three days for a lifetime for this non-smoker. #fromthedepths
