new afghan police

August 5, 2008

A series of photos by Hans Stakelbeek now showing caught my Afghan-fancy, especially the one above. The men are Afghans training to become assistant police officers. If I have learnt one thing from all the films on Afghanistan I have seen, it is that as a result of their country’s unique location, Afghans come in many ethnicities from very Eastern to green-eyed and red-headed. These men reminded me of that.

Go here for a sneak preview online of the photos.
