Rewind: Amazing Portraits
Since there are so many interesting, wonderful and strage artists, photographers and art compositions that we previously covered, we decided to remind you of some of them. We created a new column called “Rewind” that features the best art articles published in the previous months. We picked the name “rewind” because this is an actual rewind of our greatest hits!
The children captured in these beautiful photos live in total poverty in the slums of Pakistan.
Forced to migrate from their home country (Afghanistan) millions of families found themselves with no house, no job and – obviously – no money. This is the ugly truth of a war that started in 1979 when the the Soviets first invaded Afghanistan, and that it is still going on nowadays with the American invasion that started in 2001.
Unfortunately, as a result of that, today there is a whole generation of Afghan children who, because their families were forced to migrate from Afghanistan, are born and raised in some of the most horrible outskits or Islamabad.
These striking portraits were taken by Associated Press photographer Muhammed Muheisen, who won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for best photographer.
