Teun Voeten

KORENGAL VALLEY, AFGHANISTAN, JUNE 2007 (Afghanistan, 2007)

In 2007 the Dutch photographer Teun Voeten spent twelve days as an embedded journalist with an American unit. The unit was stationed in the Korengal Valley, the most dangerous region of Afghanistan. Nevertheless, the skirmishes were limited to one ambush. While he was with them, the activities of the Americans were largely dominated by a diplomatic offensive: shortly before, the soldiers had accidentally shot two young men to death. During the negotiations, discussions and consultations Voeten recorded the mistrust of the Afghan population, as well as the mutual cultural incomprehension.
