Tolkif, the Central Jail in Kabul, Afghanistan

On September 3, 1978, I was released from jail in Kabul, Afghanistan. On the way out, they handed me my camera, which had been taken from me three months earlier. Surprisingly, there was still live film in the camera. I was able secretly to snap this shot as I was being led down the corridors of the jail. The two men in the photo are my fellow prisoners. This is a rare photo from inside an Afghan Jail.
