Title: Kabul Portraits

Afghan storytellers inhabit a fragmented cultural landscape, one where years of conflict have bred both frustration and ingenuity.These prismatic modern portraits of Afghanistan’s culture-makers reflect the nuanced ways they see themselves, the way the world sees them, and, if viewed from a certain angle, something close to the way they are.Co-created by Ariel Nasr, Jeremy Mendes, and the NFB Digital Studio.
