Focal Length:45mm
Shutter:1/0 sec

Not too long ago I worked for this controversial newspaper in Mexico owned by a right-wing American woman who was, I must say, quite the bigot. Before Christmas she asked me to do some man-on-the-street interviews asking people what they wanted for Christmas. She was expecting answers like flatscreen TVs and iPhones – stuff that “poor Mexicans” apparently couldn’t afford yet lusted after. When I asked the woman in this picture what she wanted for Christmas, she said peace and love. I guess that’s the kind of answer one might expect from someone you meet at an organic farmer’s market. Man, was my boss pissed off.
