Bahrains Marlboro Man
The picture was taken in the beginning of december 2009 in the souk of Manama, Bahrein (Middle East). The man sold dried tobacco leaves. I asked him for permission and he agreed very gently. I gave the picture the friendly name of Bahrains Marlboro Man.
I am afraid that the lifestyle is changing, but hope that, even if people in the Middle East enjoy the malls more and more, souks are going to stay alive!
