Between 1993 and 2009, Stephen Dupont travelled to and from the landlocked and conflict-ridden country of Afghanistan, documenting the rise and fall of several regimes and gaining unparalleled access to political leaders. Dupont’s images of American soldiers burning the bodies of dead Taliban in Afghanistan earned him a rare Robert Capa Gold Medal Award citation from the Overseas Press Club of America in 2005. His account of the heroin trade in Afghanistan won him the prestigious 2007 W Eugene Smith Award for humanistic photography. In this major new exhibition, Stephen Dupont presents a confronting portrait of a country that has remained a focal point of the world’s attention for several decades. The ‘human condition of war’ is portrayed through a variety of photographic formats including Polaroid, contact sheets and mural wall book installations.
