Photographs of the Kandahar Province taken by Magnum photographer Donovan Wylie while embedded with troops in Afghanistan.
It was a series of photographs Donovan Wylie took of the notorious Maze prison after it closed down in 2000 that brought the photographer international acclaim. The monolithic concrete monstrosity at the centre of the troubles had infected the public consciousness throughout the 1980s and Wylie’s pictures of empty corridors and stark cells reverberated with the bitter history of conflict.
His new exhibition features an altogether different terrain, yet one just as contentious. Wylie spent six weeks embedded with Canadian troops in Kandahar documenting the arid world at the centre of the Taliban stronghold.
