The Afghan Girl is one of the world’s most famous faces. The name of the mysterious Afghan girl whose direct gaze has intrigued the West for so long is Sharbat Gula. Her portrait taken in 1984 by journalist Steve McCurry in the Nasir Bagh refugee camp in Pakistan appeared on the June 1985 cover of National Geographic. Today, she lives in Afghanistan with her husband and three daughters.
