Photographer's Note

In May 1986 I was sent to Pakistan to report on the (as always) tense and confusing political situation. While I was staying in Islamabad I was invited by some Swedish diplomats to spend a weekend with them going up the Swat valley in the north.
The scenic Swat valley reminded me much of Afghanistan. In recent months it has hit the headlines around the world with reports of heavy fighting between security forces and a Taliban-style militia. In 1986 however, as far as I could tell, it was very quiet.
This was scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
