平山广东中国 Pingshan, Guangdong, China–For the past ten years, this Sichuan-born Chinese man has spent nearly every single day from 8am to 10pm on this street corner, working by sunlight in the day and by this single fluorescent bulb in the night. He does anything from fixing bags to repairing high heels to polishing leather shoes, making only a couple US dollars per customer. He has the reputation as the best quality street artisan in town, which is how I heard of him. This is how he supports his family.
