I’ve got an idea for the photo essay that I’m going to try out. Everyone wears shoes. The styles make a statement about the person in some way. Greg is the “shoe master” of sorts. To show how his shoe shining impacts the community, I want to take photos of people walking around with shined shoes. I’ll have to ask people as I notice their shoes. It might even be slightly awkward the first few times, but it’s a good chance to practice the sort of skills Brandon Stanton uses to build his Humans of New York project. I think if I can get a number of shoes to surround the images of Greg at work, it will make for a playful way to show how he is subtly impacting our little world in St. Benedict.
