Hidden War of Afghanistan

Additional Info

  • Project Description: In March and April of 2009, I spent part of each day for five weeks getting to know some of the heroin addicts living at the Russian Cultural Center in Kabul. The Russian Culture Center is a complex of buildings built by the Russians during the 1980’s to house cultural events. It was largely destroyed during the civil war in the early 1990s. From 2006 until the summer of 2009 it housed over six hundred addicts, with up to 2,000 men buying and using their heroin there each day.
