Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?

This photo essay is a series of portraits I made during two trips to parts of Africa and The Middle East in 1975 and 1978.

Tough guy, nice girl!

    I can only imagine the living conditions, based on the mismatched clothing that seems to be barely holding together. Yet their faces snow nothing of the conditions, and everything of love!! Well done as always!

    Can't help notice the obvious differences in the children. One childs clothes are in pristine condition with hair combed. The other child is an absolute ADORABLE mess with the dirty face and the disheveled clothing.I LOVE it!
