Potato Chips Vendor

Meet Musa Khan. He sells potato chips at Super Market Islamabad.


These are deep fried potato wedges and are a popular snack among the shoppers in Islamabad. Loaded with oil, starch, salt and chillies though.

The above was a candid shop. After a while I requested for a portrait and this is how he presented himself.


I requested him to smile and he did:


A fine young man earning an honest living in these tough times. I hope he makes enough to feed his family.

    Excellent pictures Dr IQ, really like the fact that you have captured the candid portrait and then created a constructed portrait. Great idea.
