Who is this old man?


By Chuck Woodbury

I photographed this old man in Quartzsite, Ariz. But as you have probably figured out, he’s not real. He’s a weathered mannequin. But I like his face and his eyes. When you stand right next to him and look into his eyes, it’s kind of spooky because you swear he is looking right back at you.

I wonder if this mannequin man was modeled after a real person. My guess is yes.

If you know who he is or was, please let me know. And if, by any chance, you happen to be that person, please contact me or send me your photo. I won’t hold my breath, but I thought I should at least ask.

He’s pretty interesting looking, isn’t he?

He’s the First RVer! He looks like a Malcom or maybe a Barnie!
