The forests in Czech have a fairy-tale-like aura about them. Like a Vodnik, a czech mythical character, is going to come through the forest and appear right in font of you. It's quiet, open and meditative. This is in Southern Czech close to Ceske Budejovice.

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.
