The aftermath of war in Afghanistan - the destruction of the city of Kabul over successive wars has led to a strange and alienated environment where people still live among the ruins.

I can’t believe that photographers go into war zones dressed like soldiers! Soldiers are the people they shoot at. If I could wear a clown suit I would do it – if I could wear the big shoes and everything. I would wear the whole fucking thing.
