Photographer Muhammed Muheisen, who works for the Associated Press, recently was awarded Time magazine’s Best Wire Photographer Of 2013 award. Muheisen spent 3 years photographing the lives of Afghans who live in sprawling refugee camps in neighbouring Pakistan.
In a recent interview he said
“For me all of the children in this series have a special place in my heart because through them I learned how to appreciate what I have. I am always amazed how the Afghan refugee children enjoy their time with nothing. They create elaborate games with no money and they are so creative. I wanted to show the outside world what I see every time I meet these children, their stunning eyes and their tough life standing together in front of my lens. ”
