Afghanistan is a collection of stunning, lyrical photographs from an acclaimed, prize-winning photojournalist.

From 1994 to 2006, Seamus Murphy photographed the effects of the Taliban regime, the tumultuous years of civil war, and the historical elections following the fall of the Taliban. Alongside scenes of war and politics, his magnificent photographs capture intimate images of domesticity, work, and leisure.

Seamus Murphy has won six World Press Photo awards and has received widespread acclaim for his work in Afghanistan and the Middle East.
