Photographer's Note

Just outside of Lahore, I was led to a gypsie tribe. They make their daily living from snake charming, and live outside the city limits in poverty. Most reject them, they're cast aways from society, and so they live very tightly secluded in their small group. I was extreemely lucky to be let in (thanks to Malik) and let to wander freely with my camera.

If you look at the year this was taken during the war on Afghanistan. Though Lahore is far from the Afghan border, rumbling at the same time were nuclear tensions between India and Pakistan. The Pakistani army was parked all around the gypsie tribe, and giving them daily troubles.

This is an old lady, member of the tribe, though age has caught on the fire in her eyes lives.
