Luke Powell by the wonderful blog carmelcarmelo .Luke has travelled extensively throughout Afghanistan capturing many compelling images of the people, landscape and architecture. I've showcased some of his photos depicting women in this country, a topic of profound interest to me. I just finished reading 2 books related to this issue ( Kabul in Winter by Ann Jones and The Bookseller of Kabul by Asne Seierstad) both heartrending accounts of life in Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban, which remains highly misogynistic and tyrannically unjust. I thought this a fitting post with which to end the year.My mini tribute to a brutally oppressed segment of the world's population- the Women of Afghanistan.
