“Everybody Knows Me”


Sitting in the same spot for about twenty minutes having a conversation with another photographer. I met Craig King. Walking from a side street we noticed each other immediately. He greeted me and my friend by “saying he loves us and loves seeing young black males doing something positive”. Thank you very much I replied, what’s your name man? “Craig King, everybody knows me”! Mr. King goes on to tell us that he’s going blind in both eyes but he’s still making the best out of his life. “I was damn good at basketball, I use to play for Georgetown Hoyas l, almost went to the NBA”. I asked Mr. King if I could take his picture, he didn’t hesitate to say yes.
