“Smile for the camera!” Although he’s smiling and happy to be photographed, seeing him could tells the opposite. He just finished the school and was waiting with his friends for the train to take off. You can see from his rough and harsh hands the kind of life he’s living. This kid made me really feel sad of the tough and poor life he has, in that moment I remember I wished I could do something for him and his friends. Who knows, maybe these photographs could help somehow!
