Zalmai received initial support for Walking in Quicksand from the Magnum Foundation¿s Emergency Fund in 2011. As the first entry point into Europe from the Middle East, Greece receives among the largest number of Afghani migrants and asylum seekers in all of Europe. Zalmai traveled to Greece to expose the deteriorating condition of Afghan migrants trapped in Greece¿s dysfunctional asylum system. The project will be exhibited at Duke University's John Hope Franklin Center for Interdisciplinary and International Studies from August 27th to September 28th as part of the Magnum Foundation and Duke University Center for International Studies (DUCIS) residency program.
