Photographer's Note

After more than 20 years of war, many buildings in Kabul are riddled with bullet holes. Some buildings are being patched up, but for most people finding the money to fill the holes and repaint their buildings is not high on their list of priorities they have much more urgent needs to improve basic infrastructure and services. I suppose that means these bullet holes will remain for many years as a visible reminder of the fighting that occurred in and around Kabul for most of the 80s and 90s.
