Faces of Afghanistan – a set of portraits taken in May 2007. At this time, I was allowed to travel to the three northern provinces of Afghanistan – Kunduz, Takhar and Badakhshan. I was – and I still am – very impressed. By the harsh landscape, by people, who grow crops, fruit and vegetables despite the difficult environmental conditions, by the uncertainty of permanent threats, by the situation of Afghan women, and by the archaic way of life people have lived through decades of war.
