Antonio Garcia, 84, is one of the last Shoe-repairmen door-to door that still walks the streets of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. For 31 years he has done the same job although his "specie" is almost extinct. He says that now he has less than a customer a day. (Despair his adversity, this face shows his strong will. I walked away but, and barely hold my tears for few meters. The "Shoe-repair door_to_door" is a series of 3 quite powerful images. I wish you could see the other 2.
