Artist's Description

I came across this shoemaker while walking around in an old bazaar in Tarsus, Turkey. He seemed quite involved in what he was doing. I took a few shots and then left. He had a small shop located in one those narrow streets that you would find in old bazaars. The light was coming through a worn out sun shade that was covering the bazaar and casting deep shadows behind him like sweeping away the details of his old little place, and reminding him that urbanization was about to take his shop from him.
