Afghanistan before the conflictsFor many of our generation, we have grown up to think of Afghanistan as a war zone. For as long as I can personally remember, it’s been an area of conflict, destruction and disquietude. I recently stumbled across an article that featured imagery of Afghanistan from the 1960’s, by a Dr William Podlich. He and his family took a trip to Afghanistan during the 60’s, and he captured what I hadn’t even acknowledged existed. Afghanistan, before the conflict. I Guess that’s down to my own lack of learning.. Either way, the images below are something truly extraordinary, and I’m hoping it will leave you as it’s left me; wanting to learn more.
