Don Nicasio Diaz, elderly man

I met Don Nicasio at the Catedral de Nuestra Senora de la Purisima Conception in Campeche, Mexico where he was in charge of the public bathrooms. We talked and het told me a very short version of his life story. A story full of tragedy. I felt a very strong connection with the man, and took several portraits of him.
