Story

Farshad Usyan

Farshad Usyan was born and educated in Afghanistan’s northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif. Farshad’s interest in photography began when his brother Qais started working for the Agence France Presse (AFP). When Qais died in 2012, he was asked by the agency to take up a role as a photographer to continue his brother’s work. Since 2013, Farshad has covered stories the length and breadth of Afghanistan, producing work for numerous international publications. Farshad uses his camera to tell untold stories with a powerful social message. Beyond his work with AFP is regular contributor to Climate Tracker, and the Ground Truth Project.

THE IMPACT

All profits from the print sale will go to EMERGENCY's crucial work in Afghanistan. Donations will fund specialist training of local nurses & doctors, who will go on to treat thousands of patients in need across the country. On the 15th of August 2021, Afghanistan fell to the Taliban. One year later the world’s attention has moved on. However the situation in Afghanistan is getting worse and worse. Faced with economic sanctions, severe drought, the cumulative toll of decades of war and renewed violence, the role EMERGENCY plays in Afghanistan is more critical than ever.

“My message is urgent: Don’t shut the door on the people of Afghanistan" Martin Griffiths, the U.N.’s emergency aid coordinator.
