Photographer's Note

A musician performing in a park in Kabul, Afghanistan, in September 1972. I was on a journey through Asia and had been eagerly looking forward to seeing Afghanistan. I wasn't disappointed. The five weeks I spent there that autumn and in the spring of 1973 remain among the highlights of my "career" as a traveller.
It was with very mixed feelings I returned a couple of times, as a journalist, in the 2000's to find a country so severely damaged, including the relaxed lifestyle and tolerant attitude I had met in the 70's.
This is an original b&w picture, scanned from an Agfa ISS negative. It was taken with a Canon FT-QL camera.
