Kandahar, where Mullah Omar had made his final headquarters, has traditions of men in high-heeled sandals, with make-up of kohl and painted nails like sultry silent-movie stars. Photojournalist Thomas Dworzak, on assignment in Afghanistan, discovered a cache of photographs of Taliban soldiers in a hole-in- the-wall photo shop in downtown Kandahar days after they had fled the city. Some sit alone, others with a friend or a Kalashnikov, with garish colors, bouquets and sometimes Swiss chalets serving as exotic backdrops. This book is a bizarre treasure. Item #6
