The image above consists of mirror reflections of buildings on Shawmut Avenue at Sam's Glass in the South End. Sam is both an institution and a mad man. The South End easily embraces multitudes. His father, a glazier, used to wander the streets with glass and glazinbg tools on his back soliciting business. Sam says that before he climbed up five flights to do a job he'd always shout out, "You got the money?" Sam inherited that work ethic and attitude, which supports two kids at Boston Latin School (which means Harvard ahead, of course, god help him/us).
