A personal selection of photographs with their stories.
You can consider them as little self-employed, the camelôs on the streets. They try to sell their merchandise to the passers-by. From behind their little stalls – sometimes no more than a wooden board on a stack of crates – they shout their merchandise to the clients, or stay silent or sit until an interested customer draws his attention. In the big cities, these camelôs occupy small spaces along and on the sidewalks, and in various squares and open spaces. You can find literally everything: refreshments, household items, small electronics, clothes and shoes, as well as fresh fruit. This camelô in João Pessoa used a wheelbarrow as a mobile stall for his fruit.
