Object:Street scene in Kujundžiluk
Description:Three men pose for the photographer in Kujundžiluk Street. The man standing to the left, his right hand on his hip, is in a fes and a uniform jacket, and wears gaiters over his laced shoes. The other two, on the right side of the picture, have been caught in movement and are blurred. In between, in the centre of the photograph but further back, three men are sitting on a bench in front of an open shop window, watching the scene. The shop is a poorly constructed, one-storey building. On the left margin of the frame, a boy looks on in front of a door belonging to the same building. He is wearing a light cap and holding his hand to his mouth, as if eating.
