Zuma Press photographer Louie Palu has won the 2010 professional Alexia Foundation grant for his proposal to document the birthplace of the Taliban – Kandahar, Afghanistan.

Palu began documenting the Kandahar area of Afghanistan in 2006 and has been returning to the area annually since then. Palu says he “will seek to go further into many distant districts to document the cultural and social fabric of villages centuries old and their tribal and ethnic affiliations. Many villages I have been to have never met a journalist and don’t even understand what a journalist does. I have come to know the region well and have all the contacts to work independently from the military.”

The Alexia Foundation was started to honor the memory of Alexia Tsairis, an honor photojournalism student at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, who was a victim of the 1988 terrorist bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.
