Guilad Kahn
Afghanistan


This series showcases the photographer’s observations of soldiers of the US Army’s 10th mountain division on patrol in the highly volatile Logar province in Afghanistan and their interactions with the local population. The images portray soldiers on their first incursions into a heavily armed, Taliban controlled area. While helping to rebuild and support local schools, hospitals and mosques, the soldiers encounter deadly firefights with the Taliban on a daily basis.
