While working for the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) I developed the concept of the Panotriptych and created nine special images for the United Nation's 70th Anniversary in 2015. The nine Panotriptychs below feature Afghan professionals from various walks of life, who are actively working to improve their country and are considered role models within Afghanistan.

Special credit goes to Fardin Waezi and Najib Haidari with whom I worked closely to create these images.
