Luxor, Egypt; blacksmith selling his wares. Shows men, one with a goat, examining metal implements. Trades such as smithing are often performed by landless villagers who are often amongst the poorest groups. In 1990, as much as 40% of the rural population was landless. These people often provide village services including carpentry, machinery maintenance, and livestock herding or cultivate land for absentee landlords as tenants and sharecroppers. Photographed in January 1990.
