I'll be reporting from Afghanistan for the next few weeks. The elections are right around the corner, but in some parts of the country people have more pressing concerns. I met this woman and her daughter at an internally displaced persons (IDP) camp on the outskirts of Kabul. She was forced to flee her home in Helmand province due to heavy fighting between the Taliban and NATO-led forces. The winters are cold here, and money is tight. She burns scavenged scraps of cardboard to stay warm.
I hope to post more in the coming days. Stay tuned.
Meanwhile, a few more photographs can be found here.
