Kabul was a bustling center of international trade and commerce when I visited Afghanistan in 1977, a time now gone, with the country engulfed in decades of war. The kindness and beauty of these rugged, poetic people are revealed in my photographs and reflect decades of cultural progress, peace, and a stability that I hope will be once again.
Your tax-deductible contributions will help prepare the photographs for museum exhibitions where the public can gain deeper insight into the true heart of the Afghan people through the intimate portraits of friends and strangers I met there. My goal is that these images will also provide inspiration for Afghans everywhere and give them strength, courage, and hope for a renewed future.
This my Gift of History, and my hope is that my photographs will bring bring a global understanding of the value of every culture whose loss would make our world a bleaker place. Let’s not let this happen. Every donation large and small will help. Together we can make a world of difference.
Thank you for your support!
