Photographer's Note

This man travels around South Brooklyn in a small red van everyday. Ringing his bell as he slowly moves down the side streets. The bell to me sounds like an ice cream truck, but people learn to recognize the difference over the years.

He sharpens knives. Costs about $10-15 for a few to be sharpened. He told me that it has been a family business and he's been doing it for years.

Old Italian women come running out of their homes wearing large nightgowns with their hair in curlers, to have their cutlery honed.

This is a moment of his work captured on film.
