Photographer's Note

The man on the left is Rogelio Askins Aguilar, an Escritorio Público, or public writer. His is a disappearing profession in Mexico. When much of the population was illiterate, or simply needed to fill out government forms by typewriter, the Escritorio Público served the public's need for reading and writing.

I post an admittedly-flawed foto, to share this story. Blogger "Roz in La Paz" has told Señor Askins' story very well. See it at http://rozinlapaz.blogspot.com/2008_06_01_archive.html
