Although I have spent my entire professional Life in war traveling from one conflict zone to another, in the past year, for this project, I have focused exclusively on the men and women whose lives have been crushed by the war in Afghanistan, a country I have been visiting for over a decade.
I haven't been allowed to work in my home country of Iran for the past four years, since the last elections there inwhich were turbulent. Afghanistan is an equally turbulent alternative to being back at home in Tehran.
In my role working for the Getty Images news service, the people of Afghanistan have been my main subject matter in these past four years that I have spent living amongst them.

I am very much interested to know how the viewer feels when seeing my images. The main question I have had during these years is: Every time I see a young Afghan boy or girl in the streets, as unhappy as children in European countries are happy, this question rings in my head.
War is not the only thing going on in Afghanistan. There is the influence of Persian and Mughal culture in traditional Afghan architecture and decorative garments. There is a paradox between the tranquility of Eastern culture and the violence of war.
