A Photo Journal • 1977

These striking photographs from Joanne Warfield’s 1977 Photo Journal of Afghanistan are a valuable, cultural endowment that capture a vital time of peace and will serve to create a greater understanding of humanity. The kindness and beauty of a rugged, poetic people are reflected in these images during a time of freedom and cultural progress, when the Afghan people were living with pride and dignity, much as they had for generations.

It is my hope that these photographs will serve as an example of inspiration and encouragement for Afghans everywhere, as well open the hearts of all who see them. —Joanne Warfield

Mission

My goal is to create a global awareness of Afghanistan and its people during a time of flourishing and peace. The 80-some photographs, from my 1977 journey there, reflect a time now long gone, when the Afghan people lived with pride and dignity, much as they had for generations. I hope these images will open your hearts to see the Afghans as I did — a kind, poetic people. [read more…]

When a culture is extinguished, it is like a galaxy in our universe dying. The world becomes a darkened, achromatic place from the loss of that uniqueness. Let’s not let that happen. —Joanne Warfield
