AFGHN-10128, Women shoppers dressed in the tradional burqa, Kabul, Afghanistan,1992″McCurry was amazed. He couldn’t believe his eyes. The chance of seeing five Afghan women together, wearing five differently coloured burkhas, is miniscule, he thought. Seeing the women together in a bazaar, shopping for modern-day sneakers from the West, is even more extraordinary. McCurry made this picture. The bonus is the little girl waring red sneakers on the right – and the women with red slipper on the left.“ – Phaidon 55Bannon, Anthony. (2005). Steve McCurry. New York: Phaidon Press Inc., 21.Covered Head to heel in the traditional chadri, shoppers in Kabul signal Afghanistan’s return to fundamental Islam. Until 1989, women were pressured to conceal their bodies from all but close relatives; by the time women won the right to vote five years later, the chadri was becoming rare in major cities. Today’s leaders urge women to wear the full-length garment; although Western fashions are still for sale in the bazaars. Mackenzie, Richard. (October 1993). Afghanistan’s Uneasy Peace.
