” …the strength of photography lies in its ability to evoke humanity. If war is an attempt to negate humanity, then photography can be perceived as the opposite of war.”
-James Nachtwey, ‘Witness’ Photographer

The tomb of Sultan Mohammed Telai, great-great grandfather of Nadir Shir, an Afghan king. Its arches are decorated in Italianate stucco, but the tomb itself is badly damaged and graffitied. The strategic location of the hill is readily apparent from here, and was much fought over in the 1990s.
Yuri Kozyrev visited Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai, and saw a Kabul that has been shaped by war. See more here.
”Despite all the emphasis on new media, photography has never lost the power to move us”
