    The legendary Bobcock.


    Himself and Bustak were (I'm sure still are) great photographers.

    'portrait' can be a loose term.

    ^ Like 9/11 and Princess Diana, I remember where I was when I heard. Which is a bit odd, as I wasn't yet a teenager.

    Married at approximately 13 years old. Widowed, 4 children, one of which died in childbirth. In 2016 was arrested and imprisoned in Pakistan for using forged documents. Was welcomed back to Afghanistan upon deportation, and given a 3,000 sqf residence and a promise of financial support by the government for her and her children.
    Wow! I always wondered what became of the girl in this famous cover photograph. What a story and haunting eyes to tell the story. Thanks for the update.

    ^Cheers, nice photo! Amazing!

    That pic that bobcock took is also fantastic, ao!


    I remembered watching so many talented Thai artists in Chiang Mai at the night bazaar, i'll have to find their pics, but I also visited the Karen hilltribe even though, afterwards I was told that it isn't good to visit them as it looks badly on them with tourist gawking at them and stuff. Anyway, this hilltribe was the most open and fascinating of hilltribes I have visited and I have been to quite a few even in Vietnam.

    The Karen longneck hilltribe who I believe sadly aren't treated that well by the Thais I was reading at one point being they aren't from Thailand, but from Burma.

    That's not quite true. I remember more than 30 years being driven by a tourist agency to a remote hill tribe village to see their seemingly poor and primitive life ("Mister, see the old woman smoking opium, she is in fact just 25 years old).

    They make their living from such performance.

    And when I peeped secretly behind the houses, I have discovered hidden pickups they did not want to show off.

    Released from being a POW, the wife had taken all his money, cheated on him, and had already filed for divorce.



    While imprisoned he lost the enamel on his teeth, so that any hot or cold food gives him pain. Because of this he is never really hungry anymore. Ominously he has been told that former POWs in his age group—Stirm is now 40—are showing signs of bone decomposition as a result of their long deprivation.
    Embittered by his wife’s action against him, Stirm chose to fight for custody of all his children and resist her demands for her share of the community property. “Loretta got $136,000 in government allotments while I was in Vietnam,” he told the court, “and I want a share of it. I haven’t shared in any community in six-and-a-half years. I was sitting in that rotten, stinking hole.” Loretta, 38, asked for 50% of virtually everything Stirm owned, including half the $9,830 POW allotment granted him by the U.S. government to compensate for time spent in confinement and half his Air Force pension. “All those dreams I had in prison were nothing but dust,” Stirm complained angrily. “I’ve been taken to the cleaners.”



    Stung by his wife’s lawsuit, he countered with evidence that she’d been unfaithful. “Mrs. Stirm was…human,” her lawyer admitted. “It was not unusual for POW wives to become emotionally involved with others during the absence of their husbands.”
    Last month came the judge’s decision, and for Stirm it was a galling defeat. His wife was awarded custody of Cindy and Roger, plus the Stirms’ $24,000 suburban home and their car. Stirm must pay $300 a month child support. In addition, he was ordered to hand over 40% of whatever pension he will eventually receive. Although the court denied Loretta a share of his POW allotment and refused any alimony claim, it ruled nothing could be done about the $136,000 she’d already received. She was ordered to pay back $1,500 she’d spent traveling with other men
