Tijuana Street Photographer

This is a very common sight on Avenida Revolucion in Tijuana, Mexico. This is the main tourist area of the city and these street photographers have been around this area of the city for decades. Some of their cameras are over 70 years old and many were made in Argentina. Their donkeys are almost always painted to resemble zebras. The bucket you see behind the photographer is used for the stopbath. The fixer is in a compartment of the camera, next to the chemical developer.
