AK Kimoto: Spiders and Sandflies (1977-2010).

Last week my good friend AK Kimoto passed away whilst en route to the FotoFreo Festival in Perth. AK had spent several years documenting small and isolated communities in Afghanistan. His website showcases a very small fraction of these intimate and sensitive photographs. Go here to visit the site. A tribute to AK is found here put together by Stuart Isett. I’m sure Ak wouldn’t mind me posting this screen grab from his website, along with some photographs I took when we were all together for the Angkor Photo Festival, Cambodia 2007. Rest in peace my friend.
