An Afghan Diary

…To follow the full story on Afghanistan (from my previous trip, in 2000) we knew we also need it to head to the north-east to meet the Taliban opposition, the Northern Alliance, who controlled that portion of the country. This we could not do until a year later in August 2001.

Our first attempt to cross the border from Pakistan to the Northern Alliance area disguised as women wearing full covering burqas failed. We then spent the next three weeks organizing a ride into the country via Tajikistan on a Russian helicopter operated by the Northern Alliance… Jason Florio read/see more

To purchase Helen Jones-Florio’s doors and storefront photography prints, from her ‘Disappearing Malta’ series, taken over a 5-year period, please visit the gallery site.

The ‘Disappearing Malta’ series is my attempt to capture an important part of the history of the tiny Mediterranean island of Malta, much of which is being demolished in the name of ‘development’. The island has an abundance of beautifully decaying, colourful, vintage (and retro) doors, facades, and storefronts –  vestiges of the island’s rich and varied history. Many of these unique, and often historical, buildings are now vying for their right to exist, next to the ever-increasing, much-favored it seems, modern, high-rise structures of glass and concrete.
