Gun Versus Stick

2006 International Photography Exhibition
“Gun Versus Stick"
Location: Bagram, Afghanistan
Photographer: Todd Hickerson
Category: People
Award: Honorable Mention

In the photographer's words: "This photograph was taken while on a convoy patrolling the Kabul River outside Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. United States soldiers often wear more traditional clothing in order to assimilate better with their surroundings and the local people. I really enjoy the play between the large American soldier's gun and the stick that the Afghan was carrying.”
