Images from Afghanistan

This wonderful picture above of an old Afghan man being treated by a doctor for the first time in his life is part of an exhibition by my old friend and former colleague, David O'Neill. David has spent a lifetime working as a Fleet Street photographer, mostly for the Mail on Sunday.
His exhibition, Living Eye, is on show at Gray's Court in York, England, until 13 July. It includes some moving photos taken in Afghanistan, where David covered the advance of the Northern Alliance on Kabul in 2001, as well as more recent photos taken in Helmand with a medical evacuation team.
This one was taken high in the Hindu Kush in November 2001 in the last days of the Taliban regime. If you are passing by, drop in to see more of these brilliant pictures.
