For more than a decade – since the beginning of the war that started in 2001 – images of Afghanistan have been bound up with violence and suffering. One of the leading photographers covering the conflict, the paulistano photo-journalist Mauricio Lima was in Afghanistan in 2010, and managed to produce a body of work that transforms the inescapable sights of a war-torn country into something we can all appreciate: people, living in a country undergoing serious hardships. With a flair for capturing the plight of the individual, be that soldier or civilian, he avoids creating stereotypes like ‘hero’ and ‘villain’ by placing the emphasis instead on situational behaviour.
