The Porter

Tehran Bazar (2005)
Originally uploaded by M.Mortazavi
This porter still carries the ancient porters' back brace, made to drive goods through the narrow allies of the bazar.

He could be 60 or seventy but he still carries the load for any customer who is willing to pay.

Women are his primary customers although he shies not from the men either.

His profession is an endangered one.
