The Elders by InayatShah The Elders by InayatShah
Location:  Islamabad Pakistan

It is a small shanty settlement of Afghan Refugees who refuse to stay in the Refugee camps and have illegaly settled right in the heart of The Industrial Sector Of Islamabad.  The Authorities come and know down the mud houses and send them to the refugess camps. But they come back and make the mud houses again.  The Authorities had just bulldozed down half the settlement yesterday.

The Elders of the Community were watching me ..approach the ramshackle site.  I did what would have been customary in their home village.  I walked upto them .. greeted them, they invited me to sit with them .. I spent half an hour talking to them and took their permission to wander around their settlement.

The shallow DoF field gives this one such huge character - a sense of the elder, with the backing of the generations behind him. Very powerful. And the late afternoon sun making magic with the light.
