Kaveh Kazemi - Return of the Taliban
The work of Iranian photojournalist Kaveh Kazemi is prolific, from covering the Iranian Revolution and conflict throughout the Persian Gulf to the Troubles in Northern Ireland. With ‘Return of the Taliban’, Kazemi captures the mood of Afghanistan a month after the United States military ended its two-decade occupation and left the country for the Taliban to retake power. Travelling with his wife, Colombian journalist Catalina Gomez Angel, the two crossed the border and made their way to Herat, alert for any perceptible changes in the land, its people, or political atmosphere. Over a twelve-day period, they also visited Kabul and Kandahar to record rare glimpses of life in the aftermath.
