Black and white portrait of a Pashtun man photographed in Kandahar, south of Afghanistan. The portrait is part of a series called "Forbidden Faces, Afghanistan Untold Stories", a work representing dozens of Afghan men and children who posed on public locations. While the work focuses on censorship in time and places where photography is forbidden in proximity to its strong Taliban influence, the photographs depict the Pashtun ethnic group photographed in front of a backdrop and looking at the lens of the camera to purposely ignite a refection.

The work as been widely lectured and exhibited through out institutions and universities including the International Center of Photography in New York and the University of Nebraska.
