  1. Tony clearly doesn't know how journalism works. Just this year the World Press Photo of the Year was awarded to a photo that completely misrepresented the situation. They used that photo to represent a larger story. Stop being offended and trying delegitimize Steve McCurry. Shame on you.

  2. Who cares? You´re making a chicken out of a feather. She doesn´t "want" to show her face cause she lives under islamic oppression and is ruled by her clan of men. She´s probably illiterate and analphabetic, as well. Unable to think in any other way than she was brainwashed to think. Showing consideration to this is nothing else but participating in continuous religipus oppression.

  3. The affect this photo had to the media is brilliant. But he could’ve just gotten time to talk to her and learn about her and her story like a decent human. It would’ve had the same or maybe even better outcome.🤷🏽‍♀️

  4. Excellent explanation. Years ago when I saw the story of the second time photoshoot of the girl I considered it to be an exciting news. But as I grew older, more mature and more educated, I would say it was a complete fetish from Mccurry and NatGeo. There was violation of privacy, improper journalism but above all as a person from that part of the world I see it as a complete exploitation and intended fetishization of a naive girl/woman who still does not have any idea about it.

  5. @10:22sec REPRESENTED OPPORTUNITISM & MANIPULATION.
    THE SITE OF A WESTERN FOREIGNER FOR THE FIRST TIME CAN BE VERY VERY FRIGHTENING.
    MADE MUCH MUCH WORST IN A CONTAINED ROOM.

    THE TERROR IN HER EYES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE TERROR IN HER EYES OF THE SIGHT OF THE PHOTOGRAGPHER HANDLING HER!!!

    @10:28sec JUST FOLLOW THE MONEY AS THEY SAY. JUST FOLLOW THE MONEY (she would have received a tiny bit of money following the follow up, she didn't want to but her husdand & the needs of her family outweighs her will)

  6. @14:10sec I HAVE!!! OPPORTUNITISM & MANIPULATION THROUGH & THROUGH!!!!!
    TOOK THE MOST PHOTOGENIC GIRL IN THE CLASS (THE HTTEST CHIC IN LAYMAN TERMS) , AGAINST HER WILL & PROFITTED FROM IT.
    NO FOLLOW UP IN 2002 MEANS ALL FORGOTTEN UNDER THE RUG………
    DOESN'T TAKE EISTEIN TO REALISE IT WAS JUST PURE EVIL OPPORTINISTIC EXPLOITATION & MANIPULATION OF THE LOWEST KIND……….

  7. Like you [Tony] as a young man I was enrapt with NGM photography. I've always felt that some of Allard's photos were betrayals of their [unsophisticated] subjects' trust….the pose was for photographer not millions of magazine viewers [the Amish boy with his guinea pig]

  8. Thank you for the truth …ever since I first saw her photo I have loved her eyes and had a feeling of concern for her, but after this not sure how I feel, yes as a refugee she is a potent symbol, but after hearing her side you got to wonder??

  9. すみません。このビデオを撮った機材を教えていただけませんか。could you please tell me,which kind of camera you've been used to take the video?

  10. In history there are soooo many staged "photojournalistic" photos, even the famous raising of the flag at Iwo Jima. As journalists, we seek to strongly tell a of an event through photos. There may not be much time or perhaps we're too late to get the shot. We just need to pass on the event to the viewer. The camera is our voice. Sometimes we need to repeat or even enhance the message.

  11. She had not known about the magazine until many years after. The picture has had positive effect for the women of Afghanistan, other countries and her.
    She was not hurt in the process and you are making your vilifying Steve to promote yourself is disgusting. BTW, your eyes are quite evil looking in comparison to hers.

    Here's the original pinned comment for the purpose of transparency:
    Common misunderstandings I see in the comments: 1) Islam, which Muslims practice, does not require women to wear burqas. Sharbat Gula wears a burqa because she's Pashtun. Give it a Google to learn more. 2) I chose to make this a sponsored video so that we could donate more money to charity.
