I can't remember the first time i saw this picture (the one on the left)
But i know i liked it well enough to want to know more
In 1984 photographer Steve McCurry took a picture of a 12-year-old Afghan refugee in a camp on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.
Her image (left)—first published on the cover of a 1985 National Geographic—became a symbol of the plight of refugees. It became the most used picture used for Afghan female refugees
I know i've seen her picture about a hundred times on blogs, websites and all of that
For 17 years the photographer tried to find the mystery “Afghan girl” again.
In 2002 he succeeded—and again captured her on film (right)
She looks older than 29 to me in the 2nd pic....
He remembered her eyes...
And she remembered the photographer
So she must be the one right? Right
I am lazy right now, that should explain my half baked post ::)
