I was a bit hesitant to take this picture: The Afghans are in a funny position and there is fragility in the relationship to the rest of the men. I could feel a sense of sadness from them but also a desperation to be part of "the guys", laugh and make jokes. War creates a false sense of relationships between people - I loved my brief encounter with these men.
These are Afghan soldiers and their K9 unit. They were out on a training session with the dog.

From Afghanistan: is this a new house and old boots or the other way around? Standing on the inside of a military base you have very different fears and (mis)conceptions of the real Afghanistan outside the walls. This is on the inside. Questions for you: new house, old shoes or old shoes, new house?

It's striking when people can look you straight in the eye without any agenda of their own. I felt that from this man in Afghanistan I took a picture of in February of this year.
