His name is Tim. I’ve discovered the lonely man on St. Denis Street, downtown Montreal. Standing up, with a devastated figure, he was begging for a dollar at any pedestrian walking around him. He was not arrogant or “cocky” at all with his simple question; he just wanted to count another coin in his pocket, that was all.
Asked to pose he immediately accepted. Even more, lifting half-way up his black dirty T-shirt, he asked me if I’d like to “meet his rat”. Once accepted, with a short move Tim took out in the daylight a rat. “He is my friend”, he underlined an almost obvious fact. “His name is Mouse”…
