A Kuchi girl by Darulaman Palace, Kabul

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Christophe Legris

A picture that says a lot about Kaboul. Its past – the ruins were once the Afghan Kings' Palace -, its present – the palace was turned into a refugee camp for Afghan nomads; children begging – and its future: Afghanistan is far from being reconstructed and future for children, especially girls, does not look bright. No vivid colors, it is how Kabul looks like, dusty. There is good fortune for photographers. This little girl came to me, and vanished within the next second. No time to check the viewfinder, I just held my camera on my hip and shot.

Location: Kabul, Afghanistan
