The Eyes Have It

A Tuareg man named Ahmadu poses for a portrait in Timbuktu, Mali. "This is why I travel," says Your Shot photographer Matjaz Krivic. "The people in my photos have inspired me again and again to go on the road—to meet kindness and fear, happiness and troubled lives, deep friendship and brief acquaintances." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram. Follow us on Instagram at @natgeoyourshot or visit us at for the latest submissions and news about the community.
