FOOD FOR THOUGHT
I was hungry.
It was lunch time.
As I was rushing down the stairs to go to the food kiosk
I saw these two boys in the corner of my eye
I walked pass them; my empty stomach was calling.
At the bottom of the stairs, I opened my camera bag,
Removed the Leica monochrome
I slowly walked back to where the boys were
Smiled at them, nodded at their mother
And snapped this photo.
CARRYING HER OWN WEIGHT AND MORE
Trucks, packed with vegetables and fruits
are unloaded by men and women who carry the produce to the different stands.
After some 20 years or more of being a carrier,
many of these men and women still hang around the market
that is like a second home for them.
You recognize them by the way they walk:
Half bent, almost at 90 degrees.
COLOR FULL BANANAS
THE KRUPUK CARRIER
THE BANANA THIEF
SMILING AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
After all these years
More than 25
Pushing a long needle by hand through the tough leather
Spreading on strong contact cement glue
Working in a space of less than 1 ½ meter by 1 meter
Sitting on the floor
More that 25 years as a shoemaker in the traditional market of Tawangmangu, Central Java, Indonesia.
