Shoeshiners are commonly found outside metro stations and in business districts. The term was put together back when India was under the British rule and young boys were used by British men to polish their shoes before work and during the day as they traveled from place to place.
Nowadays, it is a job taken up by young boys from poorer families who have been unable to attend school. I have to say though, they were extremely friendly boys but refused to look straight at the camera and insisted I take a photograph of them from afar.
Currently Business student but still an ardent fan of photography. I'm originally from India but I've been raised on the little island of Bahrain all my life and am now living in Canada. I started photography back in 2012 and my style and subjects have evolved so much since then. I'm always trying to learn with each photograph I take, so I would love to read whatever advice you have to share.
