Afghanistan, a place he says is teeming with stories. “Afghanistan has, to some extent, dropped off the news radar,” he says. Sune is working to bring it back.
Sune, who is Danish, arrived in Afghanistan in 2014 after three years of living and working in Iran. “I knew the Persian language and had a great interest in the region,” he says. Though he lives in Kabul, he tries to travel to other parts of the country, such as Helmand Province, at least once a month to understand the conflict happening outside of the capital city. “Afghanistan is an immensely fascinating place to report from, and every day offers new surprises about the country,” he says. “Afghans are generous with their time and their stories, and I feel fortunate to be able to listen to them and to experience this country at a crucial time in its modern history.”
