The New York Times has posted on its site today photographs taken in Afghanistan by Joao Silva right up to when he stepped on a landmine and lost both his legs in the subsequent explosion. There’s a gap when the mine explodes and then, true to his craft, there are the photos he took after the blast as medics were called. There’s also a video of an interview with him as he recovers in hospital.
