I had the pleasure to meet and photograph Franz who has been a shoemaker for 60 years. He showed me a shoe he made 1952 as part of his eduction featuring a nailed sole. This design is still in place today, though made from rubber – a material which he does not think to highly of.
After a brief sickness he passed away in December 2013. RIP
