Photographer's Note

This is from the city of Quetta in Pakistan in 1973. Maybe this man could be said to be ahead of his time. He lost a leg long before the Pakistani border areas were overwhelmed by Afghans who lost legs or arms in the war, and he was forced to go begging for his survival long before the global financial crisis.
Scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
