Explore Afghanistan through the eyes of a master photographer in a new must-read book. Buro 24/7 Middle East has the details...

Taschen is ready to release a new visual book simply titled Afghanistan, a compilation of the best imagery by award-winning photojournalist Steve McCurry. Best know for his iconic portrait of the Afghan Girl, the American lensman has returned time and again to the nation in search of the common thread of humanity that runs despite the deep turmoil and unrest. From a street side fruit seller and children playing in the ruins to a mother and her crying baby, McCurry's photos – especially his portraits – are captured with an almost other-worldly quality that invites the viewer to discover a side of Afghanistan that's often unseen.

Take a peek inside the book now...
