16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Amado de Jesús, Plaza Gerardo Barrios

“ I like this work because I have no boss to tell me what to do. My only boss is up there, my foreman is God. I have worked all my life shining shoes, since I was 12 years old. I am now 57 years old. Sometimes the work is good and I am happy and free, and without anyone to tell me what to do, just God, and that is good.”
