A Prized Moment (man w/guitar)

During the era of apartheid, I lived with families across South Africa, photographing the realities of life in that era. This picture was made on an Afrikaner farm, during a rare moment when this black farm worker, who was paid the equivalent of $30 a month working 60 hours a week, was able to regale his daughter with a Jimi Hendrix impersonation playing his guitar over his shoulder.
