Photos of Kabul, from doing a job to a thing of beauty

The BBC features photos by Chilean photographer Tomas Munita, winner of a 2006 Leica award for his photos of Kabul, Afghanistan (under Features). He works for AP as a journalist, but these go far beyond reporting: they are beautiful images that make you see a place and its people in a new light. I'm reminded of the The Kite Runner, one of the richest and most moving novels I have read in years. Put the two together and your heart aches for a country that deserves better than it is getting.
