Walking the major shopping street in Winchester I saw Joseph sitting there. He was writing poems. I was captured by his his old-fashioned typewriter, his focused work and the dedication for his poems presenting them to his clients.
After taking some “street style” pictures I decided to approach him. I simply wanted to get closer and just asked whether he would be fine with me taking pictures. Writing poetry is an intensive, very focused process.
It was interesting to learn that he invented a new sales channel for his poetry performing as “The Walking Mall Poet”.

And of course I asked him to write a poem for me…
