Contemporary Photos of Central Asia
Views of Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Khyber Pass, Peshawar and Kabul

These photos were taken in the late 1970s and early 1980s, primarily, in both Kabul and Peshawar. Ordinary scenes are depicted including street vendors, ordinary people and famed landscape. Taken at a point in time, they reflect that time, one of turmoil but nothing compared to what goes on nowadays. One can look back upon this time with real nostalgia, unthinkable at the time they were taken.
