Photographer Muhammed Muheisen (from Associated Press agency) recently shot a series of portraits of Afghan children in a poor neighborhood on the outskirts of Islamabad (Paskistan). “Their hard hard lives makes them react like older and elderly seem” Muheisen said, “but their innocence is there in their eyes.” Children photographed by Muheisen are just some of the millions of Afghan refugees living in Pakistan.
“I wanted to photograph them to show what I see every time I pass these slums”, said Muheisen. “By portraying each child, instead of being called ‘The Afghan refugee children’, will be called and remembered by their names.”
