AFGHAN BOX CAMERA PROJECT 2012

news for the Afghan Box Camera Project 

(from their kickstarter website)

Update #4: 14 DAYS TO GO!

With 103 backers so far and having gone beyond our initial goal, we’re putting all our effort right now into getting to PESHAWAR, Pakistan to get an insight into the lives of the Afghan photographers who lived there as refugees. And if we manage that any more funds go to hiring extra assistants in Afghanistan to research in small towns around the country. Meanwhile, the British Journal of Photography is going to run a feature on the project in April and we’re also going to exhibit our work (with a box camera of course) at the Ethnology Museum Munich in their upcoming Afghanistan exhibition in October. The project is moving forward. We hope all the way to Peshawar! 

 Best, 

Lukas & Sean

‘Observational realism is an approach which is probably with us to stay, in the sense that it is likely to be rediscovered afresh by each generation of ethnographic documentarists.’ (Loizos, 1999)
