Few people would follow their search for balance into a war zone. Yet that is what charismatic Australian photographer Andrew Quilty has done, with some measure of success.
Afghanistan, which he currently calls home, is a place where going out for dinner, grocery shopping or simply walking down the street are matters of carefully considered security; a place where foreigners live behind blast walls and armed guards. It is also a place of extreme elements, intense interactions and where brittle nature becomes invitingly beautiful. And it is here, in the capital Kabul, that Andrew, 32, has found a meditative space to follow his passion.
