I took all of these photos during my 44 days stay in the beautiful land of Afghanistan. Photos are taken in Kabul, Herat, Mezar-e-Sharif and the US airfield base of Bagram.
About the author:
Life is fleeting but photographs last. Photographs even have the power to tell a whole story of life. With his brother’s borrowed camera, Mohammad began his quest to tell stories. His story as a photographer began when he was 14, and he started to work for local newspapers. He sold his flute and bought a camera. After a few years of working hard, he became a photographer for BBC Worldwide Service and then for United Press International. Working with these news agencies was a start for him to know the western culture better, and now he is part of that culture. Mohammad says: “I believe photographs are not just a small part of me, they actually form my life, and by looking at this photos you are walking through my life, seeing through my eyes. If only one of my photos can stay in your memory, I have reached my goal. When a photograph lingers, remains, or is memorized, then real change can happen in the stories of our lives. That is my goal.”.
