In the Shadow of Mountains
A Portfolio of Images from Afghanistan
Allah is the mountain above the mountain, and it is He who entertains the idea — or not — of our next hour on the earth.
This is why Afghans are reluctant to bet on tomorrow. Tomorrow is not ours to presume upon. Tomorrow is the pleasure of Allah alone.
Insha’Allah. The pervasive, overpowering feeling that is difficult to describe about Afghanistan.
It is the stubborn and unassailable conviction – the ability to endure almost anything – that defines the Afghan soul and my fascination with it.
It is this powerful feeling that draws me there again and again.
