Behind the Purdah

Joanne Warfield’s photographs of Afghanistan are beautiful, and this group is important.

I asked permission to take photographs, which was kindly granted to me. I knew at the time that this was a unique and special honor.
so this incredible opportunity to photograph the tailor’s family was a very special one indeed. And, little did I know at the time what a rare event it really was.

Thanks John
