The artist

Alain Buu was born in Paris in 1960 and spent his childhood in Vietnam and France. In 1986 he became a photojournalist and joined Gamma photo agency in 1989. Five years later he chose to become a freelance photographer and pursued more personal work. He discovered Afghanistan following the events on September 11th 2001 and chose to return there ‘to show the wild and authentic beauty of this unique country.’ He used Joseph Kessel’s novel ‘Les cavaliers,’ published in 1967, as a log book.  ...

About the artwork

Afghanistan, Bamiyan Valley, April 2004. Situated 230 km North West of Kabul and at about 2500m altitude on the Silk Route linking China to India, the Bamiyan Valley is populated by the Hazaras, Afghanistan?s only Shiite people. It is known for the famous Buddhas of Bamiyan, carved from the cliff around the fifth century, and recently destroyed by the Taliban in 2001. There is an abandoned village alongside the road, and the Afghans are hurrying home as it is not good to remain outside at nightfall.
