Nothing Wasted, Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan, 1977

It's time for a melon break at this tire recycling shop in Mazar-i-Sharif in the north of Afghanistan. As a poor, desert, and landlocked country, in Afghanistan nothing goes to waste. Tires here are cut by hand and made into such products as buckets, rope, shoes and sandals.

1977, 2002 Richard McGuire
