A shot for fame/ the making of... / by Dmitrii Treu

The idea for A shot for fame came from an addicted, homeless man standing on the streets of The Hague (NL). He stood on the same spot in the most crowded shopping street for several years. Trying to provide for his needs by drumming on a empty Coca Cola can. As he stood there almost day and night he gradually became part of the city's landscape. Everybody knew him, yet everybody ignored him. As the time went by and his health decreased his addiction prevented him from drumming and he just stood there in his usual position, sort of like a statue.
