Photo by Aaron Huey @argonautphoto / Students in a Taliban madrassa in Chaman, Pakistan, on the Afghan border, 1999. Taken on slide film with my first camera the year I graduated from college. With the pullout of U.S. forces from Afghanistan just announced, I am looking back at my earliest encounters with the Taliban, before 9/11, and my work in Afghanistan in the years after, when I lived in Kabul. To hear the full stories from inside these Taliban schools follow @argonautphoto’s IGTV.
