Photographer's Note

If that pale foreigner is gonna take my picture I'd better show him I'm no little kid. Respect!

I met this little kid in the very sandy Algerian oasis of El Oued in 1975. Now 38 years have passed and he is a real man of around 50. I hope he is still alive and hasn't joined the Al-Qaeda.

In a workshop you can see other children from El Oued, behaving more like ordinary kids. Both pictures were scanned from Kodachrome slides. Please note that the workshop picture looks heavily cropped. You can see it at full size by right-clicking and opening it in a new window.
