the downturn

i came across the seemingly unassuming image by reuters’ photgrapher ‘kevin coombes’ today, it becomes somewhat more significant when you read the story; the image was shot on sept 11th 2008, at the head offices of ‘lehmann brothers’ where the employees were gathered together to hear some bad news, four days later the bank collapsed and the world economy went into freefall… then to me, (context is everything) it becomes a fabulous news picture… an inspired viewpoint to make an image
