Beautiful girls, Kabul (2003)

Teun Voeten: “Fantastic, beautiful, happy girls, wearing nothing but tattered dresses in faded gradients and primary colours, but they radiate a fierce energy and vitality. They use an old plane, a Junckers JU-52, which stands on an abandoned airport in Kabul, as a slide. The girls are poor, but full of strength and energy.”

Teun Voeten: “Beauty gives us wings, so we can escape the gravity and banality of daily existence.”
