NUJ Photography Matters

• Heroin use in Kabul. by Guy Smallman

Afghan men smoking and injecting cheap heroin in the ruins of the Russian Culture Centre in Kabul Afghanistan. Seconds after this photo was taken my fixer and I were surrounded by some local criminals who tried to take my camera. We made it outside in one piece. My fixer was very good at his job. As well as being very big which certainly helped.

Guy Smallman has been an NUJ member and activist for 10 years. He has worked in a number of different countries and environments including Afghanistan, Mexico, Bolivia, Lebanon and occupied Western Sahara.
