Kabul was a bustling center of international trade and commerce when I visited Afghanistan in 1977, at the end of 40 years of peace and prosperity.  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 someday will be once again.

This my Gift of History, and it is my hope that my photographs will bring a global understanding of the value of every culture whose loss would make our world a bleaker place. Let us not forget.

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.

*2024: Urgently-needed assistance is vital now to provide women and girls with food and health care which must go through secure channels to avoid problems. Every contribution large and small will help and be most gratefully appreciated and even life-saving.

Thank you!

Thank you for your support!
