Anniversary: The Invasion of Kuwait


Ahmadi Oil Fields, Kuwait, 1991 - Steve McCurry

It is the 25th anniversary of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, a day most Kuwaitis would like to forget. 248am has posted few interesting links on the subject. I was too young to remember about the incident and was trying to jog my memories by viewing the photo galleries when I came across this iconic photo featured above, shot by Steve McCurry (famous for ‘The Afghan girl‘). When Kodak decided to retire their 75 year old Kodachrome film, the award winning photographer asked to shoot the last roll of Kodachrome.
