Friday Photo: Child of Kalash Valley

PAKISTAN KALASH by oliviermatthys
PAKISTAN KALASH a photo by oliviermatthys on Flickr.

I have had Pakistan on the brain today, and was taken by this striking photo by Olivier Matthys.

The eyes, the timid expression, the composition and the contrast between the vivid clothing and the gray stove make for an extraordinary image of what is otherwise an ordinary moment for this young member of Pakistan’s Kalash tribe.

Olivier has more than 60 images of Pakistan on his flickr stream–some beautiful, some disturbing, some shocking and all worth a look.
