What is resilience? How do people try to lead normal lives amidst the chaos of conflict? These photographs and videos by Flavia Abdurahman and Gabor Dunajszky document moments in time for Afghans after the fall of the Taliban. The recent re-occupation of Afghanistan by the Taliban makes these images cherished memories of a time when the country was trying to recover, rebuild and reimagine its future. During this brief period, 2003 to 2006, Afghanistan tried to re-create itself as a viable democracy. Its new Constitution protected women’s rights. It was moving from tribal militia to a national Army and National Police Force and navigating its way with international humanitarian and civil-military actors.
