Beautiful Pictures of Terrible Things

That would make a great name for an 80 Proof art project, wouldn’t it? We’ll get on that.

In the mean time, I encourage you to take a look at this amazing National Geographic photo gallery about the current (worsening) opium production situation in Afghanistan. The images are truly striking, the accompanying text informative as ever.

    We were just talking about this in my Middle East and North Africa class. The UN can’t control the opium situation nearly as well as the previous regime, who would brutally raze farmer’s crops to the ground.

    The professor was also going on and on about how beautiful poppy fields are, and how good they smell :o)
