Photographer's Note

I took pictures of Pakistan 20 years ago until recently a TE friend of mine (Thanh Nguyen) encourages me to scan them and bring them back to life. I did and felt like I have revisited Pakistan again.

This is the bazaar in the ancient city of Peshawar and is a closest large city closer to Afghanistan. It does not appear to have much of Western influence but historically it is. This city used to belong to Afghanistan until the British gave a large piece of land to the Pakistanis (It was not called Pakistan at the time) in order to get helps to invade Afghanistan. When I was there, Pakistan is the host of several hundred thousands of Afghan refugees during the conflict with the USSR. This city was also the gate of the US arm supply during the same period of time. Quite a few of afghan Jewry makers ended living here. They are found in the Bazaars of Peshawar. The Bazaars was very colorful. People were friendly and love to have their pictures taken.
