Gone are the days where I live where kitchen tools and other metal objects are repaired. If it’s broken, we discard it to be recycled or send it off to a life at the dump.
While wandering the grand bazaar in Osh, Kyrgyzstan, I came upon this old man who spends his days tinkering and fixing, molding and building objects for clients and customers out of metal.
I asked him if it was okay for me to watch and to photograph him. After accepting, I stood and admired his attention to detail and clicked off a few shots.
