The boy in this photograph is sleeping on the streets outside a Mexico City nightclub. Because of its altitude, Mexico City's nights can be very cold. The boy and dogs are sleeping together for warmth.
This was a challenging shot to get without waking the boy or the dogs. It was pitch black, so focusing was difficult and I had to use flash to capture the scene.
