This was a friend who, at the time, was heavily addicted to crack and heroine. He came from affluent parents (a politician and a TV anchor), who had just recently divorced. I spent the day photographing him before he left for rehab, and that was the last day we spent together before he left. He completed rehabilitation, and was sent to do mission work on a farm in Italy for 4 years, and has spent the last 2 years doing mission work in Africa. We talk about once a year, but it's like the person I knew is gone and haunting the person I know now. (35mm)
