Photographer's Note

This gentleman has no legs. He works with his arms and hands, and does a dandy job at repairing shoes in the district of Flamengo in Rio. I regretted that my shoes were in no need of repair, because people like him can use the money. They don't sell drugs or deal in arms. They just do their best to survive in a society that isn't yet quite up to the social standard that one might hope. This man had a smile as wide as any I've ever seen. One look into his face and one forgot that he was without legs. An unknown hero among millions!
