365 DAYS - 365 PHOTOS - Photo 37, taken June 25, 2009, Oran, Algeria.
A woman begs for dinars on the streets of Oran, Algeria with a child sleeping on her lap. This photo is a bit sad, and often I have a problem with taking pictures of homeless and beggars for no real reason. I think many people relate “travel photography” to images like this. However, when tourists do this it often de-humanizes people and crosses an ethical line.
