I take a lot of pictures of kids. They make great subjects because they are generally more, open, innocent & ‘real’ in the pictures. By the time we become adults, we are conditioned to take on a ‘photo’ stare/smile when we look into a camera. It isn’t easy to get the full face, frontal, natural look with a grown-up – kids seem to be candid all the time.
These kids were at the Shura in Mizan (click here) on 3 July 2012. The shura itself went well and the kids were once again much better behaved than the kids I have met in other areas of Afghanistan.
