Iconic Magazine Cover #4 - Afghan Girl, National Geographic 1985 by omarrr

Afghan Girl, National Geographic cover. June 1985

Although her name was not known, her picture, titled “Afghan Girl”, appeared on the June 1985 cover of National Geographic. The image of her face, with a red scarf draped loosely over her head and with her piercing sea-green eyes staring directly into the camera, became a symbol both of the 1980s Afghan conflict and of the refugee situation worldwide. The image itself was named “the most recognized photograph” in the history of the magazine. ~Wikipedia
