Afghan updates by Dexter Filkins


Nothing brand new! I'm sure you have already read these NYT articles but I thought it could be good to archive the links here.

The picture is credited to Danfung Dennis for the New York Times and comes from the second article. To be honest, I didn't know Danfung Dennis before this (or did not notice his name) and I have searched for more of his work. Impressive for a young photojournalist!

I wish you all a Happy New Year!

Thanks Delie!
Looks like Dexter is back in Afghanistan and writing frequent articles. We all know, from his book and he lectures how much he loves Afghanistan!
