Afghan Girl is in original a 1984 photographic portrait produced by journalist

Steve McCurry which appeared on June 1985 cover of National Geographic

magazine. In Early 2002 the subject of the photo was identified as Sharbat Gula

(born ca. 1972), an Afghan woman who was living as a refugee in Pakistan

during the time of the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan

when she was photographed.

As a painter of this portrait I would like to acknowledge Steve McCurry as the original producer of the

photographic portrait known as "Afghan Girl".
