Women of Afghanistan

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Daniel Bader

Photograph taken while on mission in the Pirkowti Valley located in the Paktika province of Afghanistan. As we approached a small village we were surprised to see so many children running to greet us, and in the background we could see these young girls huddle together, keeping their distance. I was able to get a quick picture from afar before they all turned back to their homes. This photo is unedited.

Location: Pirkowti, Paktika Province, Afghanistan
