Product Description

Known as the kamra-e-faoree (‘instant camera’), Afghanistan is one of the last places on Earth where it has continued to be used by photographers as a way of making a living. Under the Taliban, with the banning of photography, it was even outlawed, forcing photographers to hide or destroy their tools. Spanning decades, from peacetime to war, box camera photography in Afghanistan exists within a more sophisticated photographic history. With the help of dozens of Afghan photographers, this book illustrates the technique and artistry of a visually enthralling photographic culture.
