It will be a while before foreign travellers will be able to enjoy once again the famous Afghan hospitality. Until then, Eternal Afghanistan captures on paper the fine rebellious spirit of the Afghan people. It prompts us to think beyond the dramas and tragedies that have beset the country in recent times, to a land full of natural beauty.

Iranian photographer, Reza, presents a series of pictures revealing this colourful and mystical land, with its peasants, poets and children, its majestic scenery and its ancient time-worn buildings. A special correspondent for several publications, including National Geographic, Reza is also a founder member of Aïna, a French NGO working with UNESCO to help revive Afghanistan’s media.

The well-written commentary running alongside the photographs presents a different image of Afghanistan and shows a people with ‘an abiding sense of hope, an avid quest for openness like and insatiable longing’.
