      Afghan girl. Who could forget these eyes that seemed to reflect the harshness of the war? This is the famous photo of the young Afghan girl taken by Steve McCurry of National Geographic. It is very rare for a man to see faces of Afghan girls mainly because they are well covered; thus, McCurry seized the opportunity when her her face was momentarily revealed. Her photograph subsequently made it to the cover of the magazine.

      One of my favorites. "Afghan Girl" - When he wandered into an Afghan refugee camp in Pakistan in December 1984, National Geographic photographer Steve McCurry captured one of the most famous portraits the world had ever seen. Taken in 1984, for National Geographic, this portrait remains one of the most compelling photographs ever taken. The Afghan girl with the haunting green eyes captivated everyone. That captivation proved, once again, the power of photography to open eyes—and hearts & minds—with a single image. The portrait appeared on the cover of National Geographic in June 1985.

    Indian Girl photographed in Udaipur, India, 2010.

    I found this girl after a huge tropical storm in East-Timor, near the village of Atsabe. She looked like an angel that came out of nowhere, with such a radiant smile and wrapped around a yellow sheet to prevent the chill.Side note: "Fetu" means "woman" or "girl" in Tétum, the local dialect, which is the official language of East-Timor, alongside with the Portuguese.
