Photographer's Note

A sneak up zoom shot of another street portrait - an elderly Uyghur probably a lifetime spent in the open air, working hard, without the benefit of facelifts, botox, or even sunscreen, and possibly having smoked for 40 or 50 years. I may never see him again and in some small way I would like to think that I am recording just a little bit of his history, preserving a once-in-a-lifetime moments and capture truly authentic imagery at a point in time. This also gives me a rare opportunity to live the lives of my subject and seeing people as they really are.
