Born in Brussel, Pia Torelli is French-American award-winning professional photo journalist based in Dubai. She is graduate of the San Francisco Academy of Art University.
Pia is also a globe trotter photographer travelling all around the word. She discovered and fell in love with Afghanistan at the end of the 70’s.The country was marvelous and peaceful with amazing landscape and great people. A small paradise, “a little Paris”
In 2002 and 2013 she came back to Kabul. Twenty-three years of war and five years of drought have created a city of ruin. Sad, Angry and disappointed was the feeling.
[ Walks Alone in Afghanistan ] is a testimony of women which refuse to give up a people and a country to the stupidity of the human. Two times she travelled in the country, outside the box, alone with her camera, her eyes and her soul. Like her let the Afghanistan captured your heart.
