New Afghanistan Project: 'A Tree Falls'
After posting 'The Disorder of Species' (India) at the end of last year, I have completed another Afghanistan project (shot in Feb this year) and it is now up on my website.
"February 2012 saw Kabul’s neighbourhoods brought to a standstill by heavy snow. With the landscape transformed, scenes played out in isolation, barely connected to each and far removed from the oppressive larger reality that dominates life in the capital. Once the snow had melted and the streets cleared, all that occurred, and the relief that came with it, was erased."
The aim was very simple: to photograph moments in time which do not reach the world's media and which you would be forgiven for thinking don't happen at all.
