Lana Slezic

FORSAKEN (Afghanistan, 2004-2006)

For two years Lana Slezic documented the lives of women in Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban. What she encountered did not square with the picture painted by the Western media of schools for girls, streets without burkas and women who were no longer oppressed. On the contrary: from her travels around the country and the conversations she had with women as she moved around, it appeared that Afghanistan was still a ruthless and tribal land in which - certainly outside of Kabul - women and girls were the chief victims. Forsaken tells their story, a story that they themselves cannot tell.
