Kickstarter Deadline for “Afghanistan: Between Life and War”
Photographer Paula Bronstein has just a few days left to meet her goal for “Afghanistan: Between Life and War,” a book that compiles the photographs she made from 12 years of working in the country, and one she hopes will give back to people and country that played such a formative role in her life. Read more about the project on her Kickstarter page and help her meet her funding goal by Dec 7.
Paula, who is represented by Reportage by Getty Images, is an award-winning and internationally published photojournalist with over 30 years in the business. Originally from Boston, Bronstein worked for newspapers including The Hartford Courant and The Chicago Tribune before moving overseas to Thailand in 1998 to cover the Asian region including Afghanistan and Pakistan. She spent more than a decade as a Getty Images staff photographer, documenting disasters, conflict, and political unrest around the world. View some of her past work on the Reportage Web site.
