Along with his diptych, Bill Delanney included this information:
Have been using diptychs for a new series I've been working on. This image is of John's Barber Shop. A neighborhood shop. When I walked in, around 2 in the afternoon, he was asleep on the couch. I asked if I could make a photograph and he said ok. When I took him a print a few weeks later, he said " I don't look sick at all". A few months later he passed away.
