Like the writer says below I love the juxtaposition between the cops and the couple, a very striking image and one of the more memorable images I have seen in a while. They say they will be interviewing the photographer today so will be checking back to see the update on this great image.
When one of my colleagues alerted me of this image by retweeting it this morning, my gut instinct was to shout “No way! That’s fake!” But minutes later we discovered that the image was shot by Getty Images photographer Rich Lam.
I was beside myself.
The “too-good-to-be-true” element of this photo is the juxtaposition of the riot cops and the couple who made a bed out of the littered street following last nights’ Stanley Cup Playoffs in Vancouver.
