Photographer's Note

People passing by would marvel at this classic image of an old woman feeding the birds in the street. But was that all she was doing?

Behind her was a memorial of her son's life and death. He was beaten, and died of his injuries on that street, almost 10 years before. She, the mother, asked the birds if her son could share this space with them. When she would visit, she would also feed the birds some seeds and bread.
