Aisha

Photographer Jodi Bieber talks about the experience of photographing Aisha – a young woman disfigured by men in the Taliban. What I found the most affecting statement was Bieber’s wish not to make Aisha a victim. I would say that she has succeeded. Aisha stares out at us, to challenge us, and ask how can we sit back and let this happen?

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
