This is Kyle MacDonald. You may know him as the guy who traded a red paperclip up to a house back in 2005. He's currently in NYC because he and a bunch of artist friends went and bought everything in a bodega in the village (the owner rang everything up one by one on an old school cash register) and then set up select pieces in an art gallery on the lower east side. You can read more at: www.storebuyout.com. He's an interesting character to say the least. Actually we originally got in touch about my 365 Portraits project in 2007 but couldn't make the dates work in the end. So in some ways this picture is 5 years in the making. Nice guy, I'm sure we'll stay in touch for future shenanigans.
