Photographer's Note

Almost a dying trade in some countries...

The scene is interesting to me and it's one we dont see much of these days. I do see repair shops in cozy modern shopping centres and the whole appearance is not the same, dont have that great smell of leather
and polish either. This cobbler - noble and honest profession, was ensconced at a small alley somewhere in Canton old quarter where the lighting was low and I didn't want him to see me taking his photo, so I stood
well away waited for the right moment before releasing the shutter.

Having him look up and grin at the camera would have given a bog standard ugly tourist snap, whereas this I believe is a glimpse into somebody's life without eye connection.

This is the sort that I really enjoy seeing as well as taking - someone getting on with his work in his natural surroundings..
