Here’s the tearsheet of one of my images in my first ever German publication (1 page of a 3 page article) in women’s magazine Maxi.

It’s the image on the bottom of the page taken during a demonstration organized by Young Women for Change in Afghanistan and features one of their founders Noorjahan Akbar.
