Bringing Images Home to Afghanistan
This photo by Paula Bronstein, of an Afghan electrician at work in 2006, is included in an outdoor exhibition in Kabul called Streets of Afghanistan. Exhibition director Shannon Galpin explains the purpose of the show:
'Really what we wanted to do is bring these images home, because in Afghanistan images are taken every day. People from around the world are in Afghanistan as journalists and photojournalists taking pictures that will never be seen by Afghans. This is something that has never been done before; a collaboration of life-size photography used as street art.'
