In her latest posts 99 introduces us to Luke Powell: Online exhibitions of Afghanistan in photos form the 70’s through present time.
Powell was first attracted to Afghan culture in the 1970s. “No motor vehicles, no power lines. Everything was homemade and everyone was happy and no one was hungry. It was the most beautiful place“.
During the Russian occupation there were over a dozen museum exhibits of the Afghan Folio each year in North America.
