Any other day his shirt is black.

New York City takes time away from you, and to know.


Hovering five storeys above Chinatown’s industrious streets is a hidden pool hall. Synergistic in colour, brought to you by this man - the owner.


As pool was played, I observed the weight of his working body shift from two points, to three, to finally one sand-settled elongation upon the couch. I realised a living room.


Back in Melbourne, I asked a friend in New York to obtain permission from the owner to use this image. A few days later the pool hall unexpectedly closed down.


Any given day, he isn't there.
