This is a street where you can expect an explosion any minute. But when there’s no bomb blast, it looks like this – very representative of daily life in Afghanistan. Fierce activity in the streets goes on, despite the threat, but one never gets used to the palpable tension. However, this man seems to relax a little on his wheelbarrow.
There’s toilet paper for sale on the pavement. The little morsel of red fruit on the pile of yellow is no coincidence, but a local marketing trick. The lady in the burqa is my tribute to the women of Afghanistan – invisible, but strong.
