Photos Of BSA 2021: #13: Waving the White Face Mask Flag

We’re celebrating the end of one year and the beginning of the next by thanking BSA Readers, Friends, and Family for your support in 2021. We have selected some of our favorite shots from the year by our Editor of Photography, Jaime Rojo, and are sharing a new one every day to celebrate all our good times together, our hope for the future, and our love for the street.

It’s the elephant in the room at every social gathering, turning each store, restaurant, studio, living room, museum, pool hall… into a mental jail of some sort. Will this be the holiday office dinner that kills me? Will this be the graffiti jam that jams my lungs? Will this be the Christmas cashier who makes me finally cash out?

Probably that is why this diminutive statue in prison garb waving the white face mask flag high above the sidewalk, over our heads, ever-present, unmoving, – captures a moment that we are living in, courtesy of artist Styro in Berlin.
