Beauty to Expose the Brutality of War
If you have never travelled to Afghanistan, these images can start to fill the gap, giving you a sense of the timeless beauty. It is a narrated homage (of sorts) by Simon Norfolk to John Burke’s photographs of the second Anglo-Afghan war from 1878-1880.
It’s not neutral.
It is a remarkable travelogue/political commentary documenting the scale of the international intervention in Afghanistan and the tremendous challenges Afghans face in designing a better future for themselves.
Take the time to watch.
