French photographer Frédéric Lagrange travelled to the foothills of the Hindu Kush, Afghanistan, to capture its landscape and the challenges of everyday life.
“I rarely think of my work this way, but I was really touched by it,” Lagrange says. “It was deeply moving to be there as a human being, but the imagery, professionally, was beyond my wildest expectations. There’s a certain legacy there—of giving a voice, a face, and dignity to those people. And to Afghanistan.”
