For two and a half years, I worked in northern Afghanistan. I was in the field of Education, and I was a contractor for The World Bank.
When I had spare time, I liked to take photos of the country. Near to where I lived, there were orchards and rivers. The foothills of the Hindu Kush lay along the southern side of the city. Donkeys and camels were still used.
These photographs were taken between June of 2008 and December of 2010 when the war was on.
