After 17 years, her sea-green eyes still have a story to tell

| No Comments

Her eyes captured audiences on the cover of National Geographic 17 years ago, and today, her eyes still capture the soul.

Steve McCurry's photo of Sharbat Gula, a Pashtun, made an unexpected impact, reported National Geographic.

"I didn't think the photograph of the girl would be different from anything else I shot that day,"McCurry told National Geographic.

Today, her eyes burn with the same ferocity as they did in 1985, reported the National Geographic, despite war and peace.

Her hardships marked her face like postage stamps, reported the National Geographic.

"She has had a hard life," McCurry told National Geographic.
