The Kuchis are Afghan Pashtun nomads. Some of the Kuchi have stopped their migrations inside Afghanistan and live in extremely poor conditions in slums in the outskirts of cities like Kabul.

    fantastic shot, reality, at its worst when viewed, but I'm sure in the real world these children are loved and care for deeply by their parents. Not all have 6 figures on the pay packet. Thanks for sharing!

    These children seemed to be very loved and cared by their parents. They lived in squalid conditions but they looked friendly, welcoming and proud. The older kids had fun while being photographed.

    I realized during this trip that pride, no matter which conditions people live in, is part of the Afghan culture. And this both for men and women.
