THE STUNNING PHOTOS OF SLAIN AFGHAN PHOTOJOURNALIST SHAH MARAI

Agence-France Presse photojournalist Shah Marai was among those killed by two suicide bombers in Kabul, Afghanistan, on Monday. Marai’s photos, like the one of the balloon vendor above, were stunning, powerful and among the best photojournalism we’ve seen. His work revealed life and war in Afghanistan as seen from the eyes of one of its own people. The New York Times has an excellent article and photo gallery of some of Marai’s work. Shah Marai, rest in peace.
