The original caption of this picture, which appeared in the 2000 Amnesty International wall calendar, tells us that it is of “Kurdish refugees” as they “collect wood for heating, village of Doganli, Turkish Kurdistan 1997.” While other women trudge through the snow behind her, a woman has taken a moment out of her task of burdencarrying to pose for the camera. Most likely at the behest of the photographer, she affects a needy, helpless person reaching out for assistance.
