War-damaged buildings in Kabul

This photograph was taken by Eugene Schoulgin, member of the Norwegian and Swedish Centres, president of the Writers in Prison Committee (2000-04), international secretary (2007-10) and vice-president of PEN International (2004-), who visited Afghanistan in 2003 as part of a delegation from the Norwegian Centre, which helped establish the Afghan Centre. Schoulgin’s handwritten captions can be seen on the reverse side of the photograph, including a note that ‘substantial’ parts of the city looked like this in 2003.
