Gazelle Samizay & Helena Zeweri: The Multiple Lives of the "Afghan Girl"

Runtime:

In 1985, National Geographic published an image of a young girl on its cover. With piercing green eyes and a loosely wrapped burgundy veil, the "Afghan girl," as she came to be known, riveted magazine readers.Since its publication, the legacies of this image have been profound. This presentation uses Steve McCurry's famous photograph as a jumping-off point for looking at how photographs of Afghans have been mobilized to tell racialized narratives toward militarized humanitarian projects.
