Kabul Korrespondence

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

Life is too short

Wednesday, December 03, 2008

I have only moments ago found out that my close friend Martin Ebbing has passed away from heart failure. Martin and I met in Kabul and we would meet in his house in Tehran, drink wine, smoke cigars and discuss Central Asian/Mid East issues. Martin's wife; Zohreh is not only a fellow photojournalist but dear friend.

Martin was in the process of completing what was probably to be his masterpiece in his many years of reporting. A piece on perceptions of 30 diverse Iranian's lives before and after the revolution of 1979. I hope this report will not go to waste and someone will finish this amazing project he almost completed.


To Zohreh and Martins son Nick I wont say my thoughts are with you, I say: I actually know exactly what you are going through and it does get easier.......

I lost my father in June, another close friend Jason in October and now Martin. Life is too short to waste. Live every second, savour every breath, enjoy every interaction. Don't waste your fucking time pleasing your boss, make yourself happy and the people close to you.

RIP
