Close up portrait of a Baluchi porter, from Iran, standing in front of a wall in Dubai. A man with a thin moustache stands against a wall, his head half turned to the right. He wears a striped waistcoat over his thobe (long shirt) and has a small plaid ghutra (headscarf) tied closely around his head. A large checked cloth hangs over his shoulder.
