“Undercover” in Afghanistan with a Leica M10
I’m back with a dose of insanity. After getting married at the top of a fiery volcano in war torn Congo last year and then honeymooning on top of an iron ore train in Mauritania, we decided we needed a proper adventure to celebrate our one year anniversary. Therefore last week we ventured into Afghanistan “undercover” and I must say it was our grandest adventure to date. The trip was filled with buzkashi (a headless goat version of equestrian polo), dog and camel fighting, drug dens, a cemetery overrun by heroin addicts, and plenty of other surreal interactions. Some of the shots are a bit soft on the focus but it was tough taking quick shots during adrenaline fueled encounters.
Enjoy the shots and I hope the content of this post doesn’t upset anyone – it all comes down to cultural sensitivity which we all could use a little more of.
