The crowd was huge. There were more men waiting to receive the relief aid than there was actual aid. There was pushing, shoving and angry venting of frustrations. This man silently waited. And waited. Names were called and men picked up food to take to their families. This man went home with nothing. There just wasn’t enough.
This photo is part of a series of portraits done in far northern Pakistan, six months after the devastating earthquake that killed 80,000 people, where families are still living in tents.
