Description

Walking the deserted part of the old areas of Panama City during June 1993 I was photographing old ruins and buildings. It was 100+ degrees, all of the residents were out of sight. As I looked through my lens I caught this child crawling and crying from under this makeshift door. The child's body was covered with scabs - measles or chickenpox. The sadness in his face and the sounds of his crying will never leave me. The throw blanket was beautifully hand-made - something you would see gracing a Church bench.
