Title

2007

Description

Youthful energy and dynamic movement give this picture its splendid charm, echoed by the wall art in the background. The joyful spontaneity seems to spell hope, something people think about often in the context of present-day Afghanistan.
"I took this photograph in Kabul while I was in my car and we were beside a school,'' said photographer Leslie Knott. "I looked out the window and saw this boy doing back flips. The background combined with his actions was too perfect. I hopped out of the car and snapped a few while he performed."
