Everyday in Frankford

From Chris Baker Evens.  See more of his work at this link.

Don, nearly 60, joined his father cleaning windows along Frankford Avenue at sixteen years old. After 43 years washing windows he now walks along the Avenue seeking work from shop owners, many who use corporate services that decimated his client base. Companies supply chemicals and tools but not the labor and instead of hiring a cleaner, like Don, shop owners provide the labor themselves. A good day for Don could mean five shop fronts. Many days he struggles to secure as many.
