timtrips Remember this young Afghan refugee from the cover of National Geographic? She was a big mystery for 17 years. What was her name? Had she survived? This past January photographer Steve McCurry joined a crew from National Geographic to search for her. They showed her photograph around the refugee camp in Pakistan where McCurry had encountered her as a schoolgirl in 1984. Finally, after some false leads, a man who had also lived in the camp as a child recognized her. Yes, she was alive. She was living in the mountainous Tora Bora region of Afghanistan. Finally, the story of this woman, Sharbat Gula, has been told. #SteveMcCurry #NationalGeographic #SharbatGula 2w
