Afghanistan 1984



Expression oh so haunting
Piercing eyes which bore
Sharbat Gula Afghan
1984



Sharbat Gula became Afghanistan’s most famous refugee after US photographer Steve McCurry captured her face in a refugee camp on the Pakistan-Afghan border in the 1980s. This picture which later went on to become a symbolic image was published on the front cover of the National Geographic
