BOLETOS DE LOTERIA:    

(LOTTERY TICKETS)

Public markets in Latin America are vast, sprawling things where you can find virtually anything you can imagine. The guy in the foreground is selling sandals and lottery tickets. He was well-liked by people around him, so when I set up the camera and began joking around with him everyone else in the vicinity took notice and stood for the shot.


SE VENDE POLLOS:           

(CHICKENS FOR SALE)

In Guayaquil the market spills out into the streets. The smells are a composite of hanging raw meat, burning charcoal, over-ripe fruit and the remains of past markets ground into the street. People are everywhere: working, talking, looking, telling stories and negotiating prices. This lady stopped butchering chickens long enough for me to get this shot.



NINITAS (LITTLE GIRLS):     

Small cities and towns are designed for walking. Commercial districts surround a zocalo or central park in the center of which in the bigger towns is a kind of band box. On Sundays families dress up and come to the zocalo to socialize. I set up to shoot one entrance to the zocalo in Cuernavaca and got lucky when two little girls in white dresses chased each other through the frame.


LOS LUSTRABOTAS (SHOESHINERS):     

In Latin America poor kids work on the streets. They sell gum, shine shoes, run errands and hustle the vendors in the markets. These lustrabotas are working the Sunday crowd in the zocalo in Quito, the capital of Ecuador.
