July 2018: Jason Florio, currently in Malta

Photographers, Jason Florio & Reza Deghati – Almost 20 years ago, whilst I was still trying to break out of assisting, I was fortunate to have dinner with legendary National Geographic photographers David Alan Harvey and Reza Deghati, in NYC. A life-affirming conversation with them gave me the confidence to pursue the path of photojournalism, that I was just starting to tread upon. Today, here in Malta (when he presented and exhibited his project, ‘Exile Voices‘), after all these years, I had the beautiful opportunity to meet Reza again – and let him know that his and David’s words had a profound impact on my life. It’s been a crazy journey at times, but the one which I feel blessed to be on…

Taschakor, Reza! Great to see you … let’s not wait another 20 years!! JF

One of the first assignments, as a photojournalist, after that inspiring meeting in NYC with Reza and David, took me to Afghanistan (more than once, over the years)

An Afghan Diary

My journey to the Taliban-controlled region of Afghanistan in August 2000 was in fact not planned.
