Afghan Refugees: 1983-2001

by Judith Mann

These photographs of Afghan refugees were taken in the Katchagiri Refugee Camp, Peshawar, Pakistan in 1983.

Eighteen years later, the two million Afghans left in dusty, sprawling camps in Pakistan after the Soviet war, are joined by new refugees fleeing their beleaguered country..

What struck me the most when photographing these star-crossed people, was their open and vibrant spirit, made even more exceptional by their strained living conditions and traumatic experiences.

The images are available as matted 16″x20″ color prints. For further information: jcmann@teleport.com
