Project Portrait: Day 37
Day 37 of Project Portrait, next up is Ali. Ali runs the newsagent across the road from where I live. He’s probably the loveliest newsagent I’ve ever met (and I used to do A LOT of paper rounds). I’ve lived in this area before and he remembers me when I moved back in a few weeks ago. The first thing he said was, “I see your wife is back (I’m not married, I think he was referring to Emily Mags ), so I’ve ordered more of the ciders she likes.” I was kind of blown away by the idea of him just ordering more stuff in for us. When I asked if he wouldn’t mind me taking his picture he instantly replied, “anything for you.” Again, mind blown by the smallest generosity. I think that comes across in this picture taken in his shop in Mile End.
