Steve McCurry’s iconic image, made famous as the cover of National Geographic’s June 1985 issue, captures a young Afghan refugee living in Peshawar, Pakistan during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. Known simply as Afghan Girl until she was identified by name in 2002, Sharbat Gula was 12 years old when McCurry photographed her in the refugee camp. Gula’s piercing green eyes and arresting stare have made this one of the most recognizable and beloved images in the history of photojournalism.
