Shopkeepers of the world captured on camera.
“The Guardians” is an on-going project by a photographer who goes by the name of Vladimir Antaki.
Apparently, he has set out to “document and pay tribute to these people, these guardians of urban temples that we meet everyday without really noticing.”.
We just think that they are utterly lovely images of quirky, interesting people in interesting places that in so many ways reflect their personalities and the personalities one suspects of their customers.
Almost certainly a cunning client campaign that we can concoct around these! In the meantime, hope you enjoy …
