oung boys memorize the Qur'an (Koran) and bob their heads back and forth as they recite passages in Arabic in a Madrasah (Madrassa), which means school in Arabic. In the west a Madrasah usually refers to an Islamic religious school often misunderstood as a place that produces religious extrememists. A Madrasah is a place where mostly young men go to learn the Qur'an, many go on to become Imam's which are spiritual leaders in mosques and communities.
 
"Void of War" is a series of panoramic photographs taken in Kandahar and Farah provinces with a plastic toy camera.
