BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY CHALLENGE DAY 4 OF 5

Day 4 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge
A former Mujahideen Soldier poses for a portrait at a Bazaar in Bagram.

A bit of a story about this pic. This man pictured tried to get my attention from the other side of the road, i asked my fixer what the issue was & all he wanted a photo taken of him, so i happily obliged.

We spoke (through my fixer) & i found out he fought for the Mujahideen against the Russians & stepped on a land mine. We spoke a bit more about apples & cricket of all things. I asked him if he was going to be around the bazaar for long & told him to hang around cause i want to get the photo printed & hand it to him. An hour later i got the print but couldn’t find the man….
