This photograph is from a series called ‘Signs..(you can see the very long title above)’. Gillian Wearing asked random people who walked by to write down their thoughts on a piece of paper.
If Wearing stopped you on the street today, what would you write down on the piece of paper? Desperate means the same as ‘really need’ – what do you think this man needed? What do you think happened to him after this picture was taken?
