REZA: A rare photo exhibition by Reza in the Valley of Panjshir, Afghanistan

with one comment

overviewAt the end of May, friend of FiftyCrows, Reza held a powerfully unique photography exhibition of images of the legendary Afghan leader, Ahmad Shah Massoud. The exhibition was titled, Visions of Massoud, and took place in the open air of the Valley of Panjshir next to remains of Russian tanks and heavy artillery.

The opening ceremony of this great installation attracted hundreds of visitors, among whom Massoud’s brother, Ahmad Wali and former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Abdullah. Those who attended the exhibition believe Reza’s photos, and especially Massoud’s portraits, have played an important role in the worldwide acknowledgment of the fate of the Afghan people.
