She looks like she's just wary of a stranger to me. :) It really is a beautiful photo, though. Wonder what her story is.

She is a afghan refugee.  In fact there was a group of them.  These refugee families are usually in camps near the border.  But many of them get out and stray further into the country.  They live in rough tents .. scattered about the slum areas of the city.   The men folk are often spotted standing  on roadside  .. trying to get day work as unskilled labour.    The women folk and the children during non market days .. gather grass and foliage .. for sheep and lifestock or firewood.  Many families band together and organise groups of "professional beggars"   .. usually the young girls.  In the morning they are dropped off at different spots in the city.  In the markets places around islamabad or at traffic lights by the road side.  On Market days .. they are all banded together and road the market .. begging for alms.

Thank you for sharing. I can't express enough how much I admire those who do charity work to help those in this situation or who share the stories of these strong people.

This is one of those photographs that captures the adult in a child. What an expression.

I do love your shot but there are no beggars.
Just people who need help and many don't know how or what to ask for. Many of them do die in body and in mind. I was one of those kids. There are many children all over the world. Pakistan is a hard place for young girls. I am very sorry about that but you're an amazing photojournalist and a very good man too.

Thank you for the appreciation.  I do understand what you are saying.

Here I used the word beggar in a more professional sense ... just to explain.

She is a afghan refugee.  In fact there was a group of them.  These refugee families are usually in camps near the border.  But many of them get out and stray further into the country.  They live in rough tents .. scattered about the slum areas of the city.   The men folk are often spotted standing  on roadside  .. trying to get day work as unskilled labour.    The women folk and the children during non market days .. gather grass and foliage .. for sheep and lifestock or firewood.  Many families band together and organise groups of "professional beggars"   .. usually the young girls.  In the morning they are dropped off at different spots in the city.  In the markets places around islamabad or at traffic lights by the road side.  On Market days .. they are all banded together and road the market .. begging for alms.

There was quite a number of them .. I have some other shots  .....  fav.me/d69aw4j   fav.me/d69avhm   fav.me/d69avfo

As it was growing to evening and the market was closing down .. the girls gathered back to the truck that they were to be taken home.  fav.me/d69avb1
