Street Vendor - Dili, Timor-Leste

Getting your photo taken is pretty serious business in Timor-Leste. This young guy was smiling and laughing right up to the moment I pointed the camera at him. He wanted very much to have his photo taken, but he wanted to be taken seriously, too. This deep, burning expression became all too familiar to me in the weeks that followed.
