Andrew Quilty travelled to Afghanistan in 2013. He planned to stay for two weeks. This December will mark five years since that first trip. In that time he has travelled to more than 20 of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces as a freelance photojournalist. Rather than depicting those conducting the war, his work, while always tinged with it, has primarily focussed on the civilians who have lived with conflict for nearly four decades and continue to today.
