Afghanistan has been in the headlines for almost three decades with news of strife, hunger and suffering. Yet for far longer, it has been a place characterised by sweeping, primeval landscapes and a fascinating, proud people. In this photographic chronicle of life in Afghanistan, internationally renowned photographer Ursula Meissner comes face-to-face with Afghanistan's people. She visits them in homes, listens to their stories, browses through their markets and catches rides with soldiers through the streets. In doing so, she conveys an image of Afghanistan that is so little known.
