IMAGES FROM THE SUBCONTINENT
My area of responsibility included Pakistan, Afghanistan and Central Asia. It was a busy time in the region’s history; civil war raged in Afghanistan, tensions between India and Pakistan over Kashmir flared, and Pakistan’s prime minister was ousted in a military coup.
On those rare slow news days, I would take my camera and visually explore parts of the country. Sometimes, I would visit a new neighborhood in Islamabad, where I lived. Other times, I would journey down the Grand Trunk Road east towards Lahore or west to Peshawar, stopping whenever I saw something interesting.
It was during this time of combining audio and images that soon led me to experiment with video journalism.
