Veteran photographer Steve McCurry has been capturing Afghanistan's wars, landscape and people for more than three decades.

His most internationally recognisable photo of an Afghan girl was the cover of National Geographic in 1985.

McCurry has spoken to Al Jazeera, ahead of an exhibition of his work in London.

The show runs in London until June 7th at the Beetles + Huxley Gallery 3-5 Swallow St, London, W1B 4DE, http://www.beetlesandhuxley.com/
