Photographer Wang Jing: Attention for Afghanistan

Updated:2012-01-16 15:57



"My first experience reporting abroad was during my visit to Afghanistan. The novelty and excitement of such an exotic environment inspired me to keep taking photos of my surroundings. Photography was not allowed on the streets of Afghanistan, so I had to shoot secretly. Many times I had been stopped by armed police officers who forced me to delete my photos. Despite this, I still caught many valuable memories. I hope these pictures will accurately depict the current conditions of the country. It has struggled in wars for over ten years and I wish to raise awareness over the troubles the Afghan people face every day.”
