Fortune Teller in Samarkand, Uzbekistan
This fine gentleman to the right of the photograph is a seer or fortune teller. His fine dress, white turban, and genteel presence suggests a man of bearing who commands respect. The simple man to the left seeks advice and appears to be hanging on every word uttered by this man. Though he is a man of some class, the seer seats himself on the street as any other common vendor plying his wares would do.
