I need to know what lens/equipment you were using to capture some of these images. Like the one with the afghan soldier in front of the no-windows house.
Or this one http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2009/07  /in_afghanistan_part_one.html#photo7

Beautiful pictures and very unique “look”. From the colors I’m guessing Leica but I’m dying to know! :)

Who are the Taliban?
what are they going to do.
For no reason, they are fighting with uniformed forces, and for very old school of thoughts.
First they should understand that,we are all human beings.
They have to accept a real,rational theory,that is Unity in Diversity.
I hope that they will get wisdom from us at the later days,years.

This post prompted a debate with World Press Photo winner Tim Hetherington about these issues. One question for the photos shown here is — do they really show the Taliban? Who are the Taliban? Are the civilians pictured Taliban? Despite being good work, these images raise a lot of questions about what we actually see.
