Ursula Meissner: Afghanistan: Hope and Beauty in a War-Torn Land Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Journalist Ursula Meissner wants to shake us up about Afghanistan and help its people. Her photographs and stories tell of a land at a crossroads, of the magic of an unknown country and the horror of recent events, as well as of the bravery of its women; from the roses and fields of poppies at the foot of the Hindu Kush to a pair of red high-heeled shoes that are a symbol of hope. Even after decades of violence Afghanistan has preserved its magic.
