Depressed woman with no food


One afternoon, when we had been drinking all afternoon, I took this photo of Ruby who was wondering where she should get the next meal from. Or rather - that was her daily problem. Of course I took her to the butcher and bought some meat for her while I was with her. As a photographer you are not supposed to "buy" people like this, but I made an exception since I was first and foremost her guest.
