“The photographer” is a documentary book about Didier Lefevre’s first trip to Afghanistan in 1986 with a mission of Doctors Without Borders or MSF who are smuggle themselves to Afghanistan to build a hospital. His true story is told in comic book style with mixtures of photos taken by Lefevre and drawings by Emmauel Guibert.

The book contains details of their trip and experience in Afghanistan of 1986 when Mujahideen were fighting the Russians. I highly recommend the book; the book is hard to put down. You also get a chance to learn about MSF’s work in war torn countries such as Afghanistan.

Posted in Afghanistan, Environment, travel at 7:33 am by matapn

BAND-E-AMIR, AFGHANISTAN - SEPTEMBER 6:  A sign marks the entrance to Band-E-Amir National Park September 6, 2009 in Band-E-Amir, Afghanistan. Located in the province of the Bamiyan Buddhas, in central Afghanistan, the park was declared Afghanistan's first National Park on April 22, 2009. Its designation as a National Park will allow Afghanistan to apply for international recognition of Band-e-Amir as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Band-e-Amir has been a destination for Afghan tourists since at least the early 1950's, but tourism significantly declined during the 20 years of wars and Taliban rule.
