The True Story of the Afghan Girl Photo

Steve McCurry’s Afghan Girl (published in National Geographic) is one of the most famous photos of all time. I had planned to make a tribute video celebrating the impact of the photo, but as I researched it, I came across new interviews with Sharbat Gula from the past 2 years. Those interviews revealed the other side of the story, and that side was really disturbing.
