This is Joel van Houdt

I met Joel in Kabul, after asking around for a photographer that are not only the best, but also is really really nice. Everyone seem to mention Joel. So I wrote him a mail.

With Joel I made my last Bread Exchange in Kabul. For the right to use one of his amazing images from Afghanistan, I baked him a sourdough bread in the oven at Serena Hotel. Also, I had brought a jar of home made speculoos cream which I gave home too. I imagine it to be the right person. I guess dutch/belgian speculoos is not too easy to be found in Kabul.

Check out Joel images from Afghanistan on his site. Here are some great shots from Stern, TIME, der Spiegel, NYT, Wall street journal.

But I like how he is capturing the beauty in the every day moments too. Like this one, where the girls are walking to school in the fall.
