Dr. William Podlich, a professor at Arizona State University moved to Afghanistan, with his family, for two years in 1967. There he started a project with UNESCO to teach in the Higher Teachers College in Kabul, Afghanistan, where he served as the “Expert on Principles of Education.”

Apart from his professional occupation Dr. Podlich was a prolific amateur photographer. During the two year experience,just about a decade before the 1979 Soviet invasion, he documented his family’s life in Kabul, giving us a chance today to look back at the idyllic, peaceful and above all beautiful country.

A real Lost Paradise!
