Many Magnum photographers, including Steve McCurry and Abbas, have experienced a long engagement with Afghanistan and McCurry's popular 'Afghan Girl' and work from Abbas' new book 'In Whose Name' is featured in this exhibition. Others such as Paolo Pellegrin, Thomas Dworzak, Alex Majoli and Christopher Anderson have produced startling images on assignment during the American invasion.
