In the artist's words: "Meet my innocent friend Nazia Jaan, she lives in one of the remotest villages bordering India - Pakistan called Dawar. In this image, I was lucky to catch her expression before she shied away into her log house. The children of Gurez valley, Kashmir, live in areas around "no-man's land" and share the burden of the longest international dispute in the world today."
