Afghanistan’s Children: The Next Generation

This photo exhibit shows the face of today’s Afghanistan through its children. The majority of the pictures were taken by Steve McCurry, universally recognized as one of today’s finest image-makers. McCurry is perhaps best known for his photograph of the green-eyed Afghan girl featured on a 1985 cover of National Geographic.

Selected images by Afghan women photographers are also included in the exhibit. The photos are complemented by quotes from “Coming of Age in a Globalized World: The Next Generation”, a new book by M. Adams and A. Carfagna that reveals the interconnected nature of today’s age and challenges the next generation to forge global connections to overcome global problems.
