The Thrill Of It All

Volunteers of America, New York, 1976-1978, Susan Meiselas
”The Volunteers of America was the organization behind the homeless men on Fifth Avenue who dressed as Santa Claus to collect money for the shelter in my neighborhood. Most people on the sidewalks just walked past them, some made contributions, but others had their children balance on Santa’s knees, never of course imagining where these men had come from.” - Susan Meiselas
