I found this man standing near a fruit stand on the corner of 14th St and 7th Avenue. I assumed he was waiting for someone. I thought he looked awesome so I asked him for a photograph. He agreed, so I took a few quick shots and continued walking down the sidewalk.
As I walked away, I scrolled through the photographs, and decided that they weren’t so great. So I went back for another try. When I found the man again, he was stacking fruit. Turns out he owned the fruit stand, making him the best-dressed fruit vendor in the city.
He explained that he was from Turkey, was studying International Business at Baruch College, and sold fruit to cover his expenses.
