Update #9

Greetings from Afghanistan #2

Comment

Hi everybody, just came back from the city of Herat in western Afghanistan where we met the last operating box camera photographer, archived hundreds of his old negatives, met an inspiring collector of photographic paraphernalia who wants to open his own photo museum in the city and much much more including getting one of our films translated into Dari (Pashto version hopefully coming soon!).

We're moving on with our itinerary. Check out the video-clip to see what we've been up to.
