Photographer's Note

volunteering in pakistan after the 2006 earthquake, i found myself in a small kashmiri village. our group (who met randomly in pakistan, after the quake) split into a medical team & a group building shelters.

this kid's got scabbies, as did almost all the children in the village & the surrounding area. you can see the scabs he's got on his chin. scabbies is incredibly itchy & is yet another thing for the victims of the earthquake to deal with. they got this disease because of unsanitary & cramped living conditions. they were living in horrible tents, as all homes in the village had been reduced to rubble.

if anyone's interested, i started a blog about the work we were doing:

(i think that's right, don't have time to check).

sorry this note's a bit lacking in feeling, but it's a very difficult experience to try to explain, i hope the photos will speak better than my words.
