Photographer's Note

I was looking at some of my very old stuff when I got that one from an old derelict, almost sticking to my fingers, neg.

This is Afghanistan in 79, one of my early trips that gave me the taste of traveling, I was 14 not on my own of course, I had seen other countries earlier but I think the bug came from here.

This is also the very moment when the photo bug struck me, I remember I had a nasty Olympus camera but it was like a revelation, I saw for the first time what would happen if I stayed waiting before clicking. So I waited for them...

It wasn't me that would freeze in that minus something coldness, I'd freeze them instead with my camera, the donkeys, goats and people in front of that glorious background.

As far as I remember, it's a village around Pul-I-Khomri, which town was quite famous 2 years ago when the Northern Alliance beat the Talibans.
I was feeling strange because I had been to most of the places of northern Afghanistan they listed in the news, it was like they dug up all my memories after being buried for 20 years.
