I have always been enthralled with the image of the Afghan girl photographed by National Geographic photographer, Steve McCurry. She was about seventeen at the time and her eyes were hauntingly beautiful.
In 2002 he returned to Afghanistan to find her... and he did!
She is only 32 or 33 years-old in the 2nd image and due to a very hard and typical life lived in the country, she looks much older.
Random, but interesting, no?
