Mansoor Ahmad Dar, Hajin, Bandipora, May 2017
Mansoor Dar is a victim of the pellet guns used by Indian Security Forces in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, ostensibly for law and order purposes. Mansoor is permanently blinded in one eye, which is straining his second eye to the extent that he had to drop out of school. This image was made for Amnesty International India in an effort document the human rights violations in this part of the world.
