Photographer's Note

A soothsayer telling the future for a client in the city of Madurai, southern India. The title of the photo refers to the fact that it was taken in 1988. I find it rather unlikely that the fortune-teller would bother to predict what would happen to this elderly man as far ahead as 27 years. Whatever he learned about the future is now already far behind us. Unfortunately I will never be able to find out if the predictions were correct.

I think I used a Canon F-1 for this photo, which has been scanned from a Kodachrome slide. Here is a larger version.
