98 year old dobri dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.

hair mussed and mascara running
and she seemed broken
and that’s when I began to prepare
for the inevitable.
