Photographer's Note

I found him playing in Götgatan, the busiest street on Södermalm island in Stockholm, 45 minutes ago. He is probably still there.

Love the challenge, that's what is written on the window behind: "Älska utmaningen".

Maybe the challenge of playing in public with no fear, the challenge of enjoying life even when stuck to a wheeled walker, the challenge of taking a picture in a crowded street on a Saturday afternoon without having anyone stepping in front of the camera.

Unless the musician was a total fake, and everything was recorded, not just the piano and the drums, he certainly knew how to handle that saxophone. He probably had a background as a professional musician.

The man beside him, enjoying his beer, was not looking away from the camera. He was busy talking to someone else who was listening to the music.
