NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC OnAssignment * PAKISTAN Joining In, a Photojournalist's Goal "Access is everything," says photographer Ed Kashi (above), inside a government school in Pakistan's Hunza region. "Pakistan can be an extremely closed society. It can also be a hard place to photograph if you don't know anyone, and for the first few weeks I didn't. Every night I'd come back to my room frustrated." Then Ed met some kindred souls at the Karachi Photographic Society. "They took me around and introduced me to the right people, which revealed the human side of the story. I left thinking, I hope I have a chance to come back." A native New Yorker, Ed now resides in San Francisco.
