Known as the "kamra-e-faoree," Afghanistan is one of the last places on earth where the box camera continues to be used as a way of making a living. Handmade out of wood—a camera and darkroom in one—generations of Afghans have had their portraits taken with it. Spanning decades, from peacetime to war, box camera photography exists within a more sophisticated photographic history. Dozens of photographers have contributed to reveal the techniques and artistry of their photographic culture. The story is told through a rich mixture of contemporary and archive photographs, ephemera, illustrations, interviews, and storytelling.
