More photos, of men




I have so many photos I may as well do something with them.

The observant among you will notice a slight gender imbalance among the photos I’ve put up here. These men expect their wives and daughters to put a large sack over their heads whenever they leave the house. Photographs of women, whoever the photographer, are usually out of the question. I don’t even feel comfortable taking pictures of women with burquas on.

    Give us a visit when you have the time.
    Our language IS photography!

    The drinks are on us.

    Ah, you are making me homesick for Ghor.

    Taking photos was something I did without always knowing why I did it. But now I have this little exhibit going up in NZ, all about Ghor, and it amazes me how much impact those humble little photos can have on people back home. So I encourage you to keep it up.

    These people have faces with their stories and that is most important…whether we agree, disagree, are angry or happy or sad w/ them…they have a voice, they are important and the fact that you’ve placed your photos here…well, you’ve given them that voice.

    Thank you.

    If you dont’ mind, I would love to down load some of your photos to my computer…I love beautiful photography

    Would love to be able to see your exhibit, but probably not going to happen. Unless you take it on a global tour? Perhaps we should both bring our photos back to Chagcharan in ten years time for a retrospective of some kind.

    I have an exhibition venue for you in London — a room with a view! World tour, why not? And make sure you have a stop in Kabul as well. It’s too easy for gallery goers in capital cities to ignore what is under their nose, so to speak, a few hundred miles away. (Very true here in the centre of the universe, e.g. re floods in Hull.)

    More! More! More! These pictures tell thousands of stories… More! More! More!
