Picture Afghanistan: Teaching Photojournalism in a War Torn Country
Photojournalists from around the world have been sent to Afghanistan to capture the human toll of the war there. However, we rarely see the work of Afghan photographers who can bring a local perspective to what is happening in their country. That is why the 3rd Eye Photojournalism Center trains young Afghans to work with cameras, set up websites, and critically evaluate media depictions of their communities.
As program graduate Zekria Gulistani says, “Most of the photographers who come to Afghanistan are only coming to go to provinces where there is always fighting.” Pointing to a picture of a young boy building a structure out of stone bricks, Gulistani continues, “Even if the there is fighting, we have people who are already interested in starting their new lives in Afghanistan. So we need photographers who show the lives of the people.”
This short film by Cultures of Resistance takes a look at those rarely-seen pictures, as it profiles the young people who will shape the future of photojournalism in Afghanistan.
