About the Photographer:
After graduating in philosophy from Kings College London in 1994, Sam Faulkner traveled to Afghanistan to photograph the forgotten civil war between the former Mujihadeen allies. The pictures won the Ian Parry award for young photojournalists, sponsored by the Sunday Times Magazine and kick-started his career as a photojournalist. Faulkner has worked for the Sunday Times Magazine, Figaro, GQ, The Independent Magazine, Geo, Vogue, The Telegraph Magazine, Newsweek, Time, Liberation and Esquire, amongst others. In the last 10 years he has travelled extensively on assignments, with subjects including slavery in Sudan, child weddings in Rajasthan, women soldiers in Eritrea, Aids orphans in Uganda, the FARC in Colombia, drought in Mongolia, gangs in Los Angeles, opium in Afghanistan, voodoo in Haiti and poverty in America.
