Photographer's Note

Not an artistic composition, just a snapshot of four children crossing a street in Kabul on a sunny day in early May 1973.
Whatever happened to these children, considering the terrible years that lay ahead for their country? If they are still alive, they should be in their forties by now. Did they manage to escape the wars, have they been able to enjoy a reasonably good life? Maybe silly and sentimental questions, but questions that always arise when I watch this and other pictures of Afghan children from this time.
Scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
