Description

Her name is Shahrbano.

I met her in Bamiyan, Afghanistan in 2006.

With a portable printer I brought to Afghanistan, I would photograph the locals I met on the road and surprise them with high-end glossy prints as gifts, on the spot; I will never forget the joy as I surprised Shahrbano with her print.

Before I left Bamiyan, I made a detour to bid Shahrbano goodbye. Struck by her expression, I asked her, spur-of-the-moment, to pose for another photo with her photo - this photo.

It was the only record of my "portrait giveback" project, taken mere hours before my departure from Afghanistan, kept private until now. Now, let the giving back continue.

For the girl - the woman today - who forever inspired me.

All proceeds from this NFT will go to Women for Afghan Women (WAW) via Endaoment. WAW is the largest grassroots women and girls’ advocacy NGO with 20+ years of operations in Afghanistan.

The winner of the initial auction will receive a gallery print of 'Shahrbano' upon request.
