Geoff Dyer in his brilliant contemplation on photography, THE ONGOING MOMENT, talks about early 20th Century street photography and the obligatory blind accordion player. In New Zealand, Leon Smith and Nick Spill found a blind Chinese fiddle player on the corner of Queen Street and Commerce Street in downtown Auckland. Notice he is impeccably dressed unlike some the players captured by the likes of Walker Evans, Ben Shahn, Andre Kertesz, Bruce Davidson and Ed Clark. (Note to self: we ain't in that esteemed collection of photographers.)
