The Story Behind That Picture:
"Looking for Hillary"

By: Thorsten Overgaard. March 18, 2017.

 

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

 

Back in September 2016 Hillary Clinton was staying just a block from me, so I would walk by her place on my morning walk, trying to look innocent when passing the Secret Service guys outside

I never stumbled into her or any large impromptu press event outside her front door, but I was open to the possibility and I always wear a camera.

Back in September 2016 I think everybody was expecting Hillary Clinton to be the future president of the United States, so I felt the chance that any encounter could be an historic one.

It was those few unplanned and uncoordinated days where she was staying with her daughter to recover during the campaign.

Mendez Boxing

What happens when you walk about observing life, and always wear a camera, is that you will eventually find something of interest. The best photo opportunities are usually unplanned and unforeseen.

That was exactly what happened this morning.

Just next to Hillary’s front door there was what I thought was a shop that sells sim cards or something shady. What caught my attention was the sounds from in there.

While I was gazing by the entrance, trying to figure out what the small empty reception counter and the sounds from behind it was, a man walks up behind be and says, “Come in and check it out!”

Si I did. I followed him through the door in the back corner, down the stairs, and there I found a goldmine of photography.

A large basement with 50 or more people from all walks of life training boxing at 8.15 AM on a Tuesday morning. It was such an unexpected view, yet as New York as it gets.

I got some good photographs before I had had to head out to my morning meeting at 9 AM, but mainly I found a place that will always be interesting to visit when in New York.

Who would have known my quest for presidential photogrpahy would end up in a place like this?
