Photographer Steve McCurry's 1984 portrait of an Afghan refugee girl with startling sea-green eyes is arguably the most famous image ever published by National Geographic. She remained anonymous until 2002 when McCurry returned to Afghanistan and, employing old-fashioned detective work as well as the FBI's cutting edge facial recoginition technology, was able to identify her as Sharbat Gula—17 years older but with the same haunting eyes.


In December 2012, through Christie's auction house, the National Geographic Society held its first-ever auction of 232 lots from our 11.5 million-image archive. "Afghan Girl" sold to an anonymous bidder for $147,000, three times the expected price. Now you can own a piece of photographic history with our framed reproduction, signed by the photographer. Comes in a wooden frame with black veneer and plexiglass front. 2" acid-free white mat. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery. Not available for shipment outside of the U.S.


30"H x 26”W x 1"D. 2" acid free mat.

Now, the search is on to find the nameless woman whose youthful image became a global symbol of wartime dignity, resilience, and survival. Journey with us to the Afghan-Pakistan border with the photographer who took this world-famous picture as he attempts to track down his anonymous subject, following clues and rumors through the twisting byways of a teeming refugee camp. On a mission to solve this 17-year-old mystery of the girl with the green eyes, FBI investigators apply cutting-edge eye-scanning and face-recognition technology to crack the ultimate "missing person" case.
