Afghan Girl by k-hallowseve Afghan Girl by k-hallowseve
A tribute to my all-time favorite photograph. You've seen this before. C'mon. Anyway, done in art class, in graphite, to rebel against my own non-functional charcoal skills. I was thrilled in '02 when they finally found this girl after all these years--Sharbat Gula. Very cool.

Afghan Girl (C) Steve McCurry, 1985

Yeah, it's about the coolest photo ever (in my humble opinion, anyway). Thanks for the comment. :D

Yeah, if I recall correctly it was on the cover of a 1985 issue about the war in Afghanistan with the Soviets. Steve McCurry, the photographer, snuck rolls of film into the country--sewn into his clothes... unless I'm thinking of a different NG job from him... *gets confused easily* He took several other pictures of this same girl, and I'd like to find copies of them (need to look harder).

Thank you. :blushes: I may try and re-scan/revamp it; now that I look at it, I think the scanner dragged it outside and beat it to death. :XD:
