Mr. Gold stands on a busy intersection in Orlando, Florida waving a sign advertising a jewelry store. “We Buy Gold” is synonymous with the man donning completely gold attire, tipping his hat and dancing to the rhythm in his headphones. His actions often spread joy – not just the name of the jewelry store he stands in front of.
Photographer and videographer Brian Carlson documents the man behind the mask. A felon that has completely turned his life around on the chance given to his by the store’s owner. With over a decade spent in and out of federal prisons, Mr. Gold is proof that you can start again – if given the chance.
Make sure you keep watching until the end when Mr. Gold gets something he has never been able to afford thanks to Fine Dentistry of Downtown Orlando.
