Sharbat Gula with one of her three daughters- one year old Alia
Look at those eyes!
Some of the people of Afghanistan have the incredibly beautiful eyes!
Sharbat Gula is pictured in 2002 after Steve McCurry returned to Afghanistan and successfully located the then 29 year old mother of three and her family. Up until that time, neither Gula nor her husband had ever heard of or seen the 1985 photograph. Posted by Carl at 11:10 PM Labels: National Geographic, Steve McCurry
