Afghanistan welcomes Ambassador Page

Saturday, August 29, 2009

4 months ago UNAMA asked me to select and propose 10 of the world top photojournalist for the position of 'Photo-Ambassador' to the UN. Not an easy task to convince people to come work in Afghanistan, but I knew one snapper that would surely be up for the task.

Finally after all the paper work and UN red tape veteran Vietnam photographer Tim Page landed in Kabul and is creating quite a storm with his gonzo style photojournalism.

Over the next 6 months he is going to teach master class to 6 lucky Afghan photographers and intermediate class to 10's of other Afghans around the country. Welcome Tim to Afghanistan and we look forward to working with you.
