Life After the Taliban

Life After the Taliban

Afghanistan | Thursday, 20 December 2012 | 5 photos


In October of 2001 the Taliban regime succumbed to the American-led invasion of Afghanistan following the attacks of September 11 of 2001. This turn of events put an end to a brutal regime that had been in power in Afghanistan for over 5 years and during which an extreme and anti-modern interpretation of Sharia law was severely enforced.

This time of repression and fierce treatment of their citizens, and particularly of women, had devastating effects for the culture and traditions of the country. Effects that still today can be seen and felt in Afghan society.

With only 5 pictures, here's my attempt to portray an Afghan society still duelling with the anti-cultural remains left by the Taliban laws and striving to regain its own identity back.
