Description:
A color photographic print portrait of Sean at the People of Color in Crisis (POCC) Ball in Manhattan, NY in 2007. Sean appears from the chest up, lit by purple-tinged stage lights. He wears a white t-shirt under an unbuttoned light purple plaid shirt and a navy New York Yankees baseball cap with the brim slightly to his proper left. He looks straight at the camera and holds a small red cocktail straw in his mouth. In the background, an empty runway and standing photographers and spectators are visible. A bright stage light beams in the top left of the image. There are no inscriptions, front or back.
