Story

The photographer

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

Since 1999, EMERGENCY has established a network of hospitals, first aid posts and public health clinics across Afghanistan, treating over 7 million patients in the country. As COVID-19 spreads, these centres will be in critical need of support. We hope to raise enough funds to provide EMERGENCY hospitals with protective essentials like hand-sanitiser and face masks and to directly support EMERGENCY’s treatment of other vulnerable individuals.
