Inequal Love

One of those tricky challenges, for the New Republic's Inequality Issue. The story was  about a rich trust fund girl and boy from a poor background in NY and their relationship challenges.

The challenge about this was it was a narrative, but really about the concept not the characters.
Problem with showing the characters was you could get to caught up in how they and their clothes looked.

I was glad Joe picked the spoons idea. It was simple and elegant, implied a domestic relationship and even hinted at conflict. Seems so simple to me know, but was so hard to arrive at.
