Walking home from work, Dr. Eduardo Peña Dolhun meets people living on the sidewalks along Polk Street and Broadway. He had done this walk hundreds of times before one evening, on a whim, he stopped in front of a man who was resting on the sidewalk and said, “Hello sir, I’m a community doctor, are you- you homeless? “
That minute-long conversation ended when Dolhun filmed an iPhone video clip and still image with the camera he always carried. He never saw this man again, an HIV-positive US Air Force veterinarian named Reginald. But he’d like to, if only to let Reginald know that his portrait, smiling with a Giants cap, is now a 10-foot-tall photo hanging on an exterior wall of the former High School of Commerce across from SFJAZZ at the corner of Franklin and Fell Streets.
