Sharbat Gula, Afghan Girl, Pakistan, 1984: The photojournalist McCurry took this portrait picture of Sharbata Gula (ca. 1972) for the National Geographic, where it appeared on the cover in 1985. The photograph was taken in a refugee camp in Peshawar during the Soviet Occupation of Afghanistan, and the identity of this 12-year-old orphan remained unknown for many years, until the National Geographic itself organised an expedition to find out who the girl was and whether she was still alive. The artist had the chance to photograph her again after 17 years. Her expressive green and icy eyes became the emblem of refugee women all over the world, inspiring the compassion of many. Winner of numerous awards, McCurry has been a Magnum Photos collaborator since 1986. He studied photography at the Penn State University, starting his career at the university’s Daily Collegian. He worked in India for a while and then went to Pakistan, where he managed to cross the Afghanistan borders just before the invasion. He risked his life many times during his photo reportages in this and many other occasions. His “Afghan Girl” has become the “most recognized photograph» in the history the National Geographic.
