The Modern Face of Kabul - 27 Mar 2014 
Despite decades of conflict in Afghanistan, and several recent militant attacks, the country's capital Kabul is
home to a vibrant youth scene of musicians, artists, athletes and activists. Shopping malls and cafes stand
in the city, which is nonetheless beset by infrastructure problems and instability. Afghanistan is preparing
for an election on April 5 that should mark the first democratic transfer of power in the country's history, but
it has been hit by a tide of violence as the Islamist Taliban movement has ordered its fighters to disrupt the
vote and threatened to kill anyone who participates. Many of the people in the images were happy to be
photographed, but did not want to give their names.
