Srinagar, Kashmir, 1998

I noticed this man walking down the road near Srinagar in Kashmir, with his very bright orange-red beard. I asked my assistant if he could ask him, if it would be possible to make a photograph, to make a portrait. He was very accommodating, very happy to stand there while I made his picture. Of course, his family was kind of continuing to move down the road with the animals, so I made a couple quick pictures and then he dashed off to join his family. These Kochi nomads walked for days, weeks, sometimes months, looking for pasture land, food, water for their animals.
