Afghan's Mona Lisa

 

In 1985, photographer Steve McCurry took a picture of an Afghan orphan at age 12 (left). A decade later he found her at age 30 (right). He has won many awards for his remarkable photograph and the impression it left with its viewers. We can only imagine how difficult of a life it must have been for this woman (Sharbat Gula).
