Beautiful picture this! Reminds me of Steve McCurry's famous NG award-winning picture!
Also, through a tweet by Prem Panicker, I learn that the National Magazine Awards were announced last night. (Above link contains links to many award winning articles. More need-to-read-later articles to bookmark!).. but note that the REPORTING award went to The New York Times Magazine for an article about the Taliban in Pakistan.
“Whose side is Pakistan really on?” asks Dexter Filkins in his thorough, evocative piece on the Taliban’s presence in Pakistan, a key U.S. ally.
