Kabul Central Market

Kabul Market, 2003

Kabul Market, 2003

In 2003, my writer and comedian friend Henry Naylor and I went to Afghanistan to see if we could find Osama Bin Laden… Or rather the reality of the recent liberation of Kabul by John Simpson.

Henry was writing a play called ‘Finding Bin Laden‘ about the recent events in Afghanistan and the way the media and military worked together to tell us something that we suspected may have been far from the truth.

This is the main market in Kabul. The photo was taken on a Saturday morning. Burkas were available for $10. Our fixer told us he could recognise his mother in a burka across a crowded marketplace.
