PARSA had a very unexpected but delightful visit from Steve Mccurry, renowned photographer who took the now famous picture of the Afghan Girl. Steve has a very long history of working in Afghanistan and is respected by Afghans for capturing the feeling of Afghanistan in his photos. He visited a Scout community service tree planting event with us, to take pictures of Scouts for an upcoming National Geographic article on “Kabul Now”. I was pleased both to have him take pictures of the Scouts as it is a good news story for Afghanistan. I was also touched by how honored the older Afghan dignitaries were to meet him. He sees Afghanistan the way Afghans want to be seen.
