Aaron Huey: The Afghanistan Drug War

October 30th, 2008 by Alex


Aaron Huey is a guy who can take some seriously good photographs. Best known for his Walk Across America, Aaron has been all over the Middle East – Pakistan, Georgia, Iraq, Afghanistan and others – covering items of cultural and political significance.

His 37 picture photo-set titled ‘Afghanistan Drug War‘ is of particular beauty. Here’s how Aaron describes it:

These images show poppy eradication in Nangarhar Province, East ofJalalabad and also outside Tarin Kowt, in Oruzgan Province.

Since his site is flash, I can’t link directly to the feature, so here’s the navigation path:

Homepage -> Features 1 -> Afghanistan Drug War

Go check it out and see the how a country most of us can’t pinpoint on a map heavily affects heroin production around the world.

Oh yea, all of Aaron’s images are available as limited edition prints in the following sizes – 11×14, 16×20, 20×24, 30×40 – and range from $500 to $4000. If you’ve got good taste, and plenty of spare cash, get in contact with him.
