Thomas James Abercrombie. (1930-2006) He was a National Geographic photographer, to me his style is very much like beautiful postcards. “During my some 40 years roaming the planet for National Geographic I enjoyed many “special destinations”—Afghanistan, Easter Island, Beirut. Sadly, many have suffered from war and revolution and tourist buses.” It is sad that when you think of Afghanistan you see war town villages and what not in your head, not of the images that he has captured of a beautiful foreign place.
