Kabul Korrespondence

Fresh, factual, and funky view of Afghanistan and the surrounding Central Asian region

Right Now I'm Feeling Like a Proud Father

Saturday, August 18, 2007

I am very proud to announce that I helped secure the position for Fardin Waezi as the new UN as chief photographer for Afghanistan (UNAMA). The post was previously held by another Aina Photo graduate Farzana who has now moved onto a managerial position.


Fardin has been with Aina Photo since the first photojournalism class in 2002. He graduated and decided to stay on at Aina Photo as administrator and in charge of our archives. For the last 6 years Fardin was the cogs in the Aina Photo motor, when Fardin was absent, Aina Photo didn't run smoothly.

He will be greatly missed and we hope that his new path brings him all the professional credibility he deserves.

Other recent students achievements are:

Aman is now working full time as a photojournalist Noorin TV station

Maiwand has secured part time work as a photographer at Nangahar TV station

Mariam is being sponsored to attend a workshop on security and development of Afghanistan in Amsterdam, The Netherlands in September

Siar, Fardin and Mariah are being sponsored to attend a youth forum in Toulouse, France in September

I am very proud of all of them and wish them success on their new endeavours.

Well done to all!
