1001 Black Men–#377

Over the course of my two days at the Alternative Press Expo I was able to catalog a number of different times of interactions between vendors (like me) and attendees (like the man in this picture). My interaction with this man is best describe as the catch-pass. In the catch-pass the shopper catches your eye, quickly looks away, and then passes you by. Book fairs and expos can be an eye contact minefield, and if you look at a vendor for too long, she’ll wave you over and, before you know, you’ll be making a impulse buy…which, from this vendor’s perspective, would be totally awesome!
