EN SAVOIR PLUS Résumé

The fruit of years of collaborative work between Afghan and Western photographers and photojournalists, Streets of Afghanistan chronicles one of the most captivating efforts to connect communities and cultures through our common humanity and the power of art.

A collection of the spectacular photography of the Mountain2Mountain (M2M) project — a collaborative effort between Western and Afghan photographers — Streets of Afghanistan is a striking combination of art and activism that is sure to change your entire perspective on the Afghan culture.

Complete with short descriptions that allow the reader to follow the footsteps of the M2M project as they explored the hidden beauties of this faraway land, Streets of Afghanistan is more than just a book — it is a strong step towards closing the divide between East and West.

Shannon Galpin, founder of M2M, on the importance of the project: "[People think that] because this is a country fraught with conflict and poverty that art doesn't have much importance. I disagree. I think art is all the more important here. Art has the power to inspire, to spark conversation, and to bring joy — showcasing these images in public areas where Afghans can enjoy art for art's sake, and be proud of the beauty and spirit of their country."

After an extremely successful tour in the United States, the Streets of Afghanistan project returned to Afghanistan, to give the exhibit's subjects an opportunity to see themselves in a new light. Impressive and captivating on both sides of the world, Streets of Afghanistan collects both the photographs and the cultural import of a misunderstood region into one visually striking book.

Looking at the photographs, it is easy to immerse yourself in a culture which was previously unknown to many Western audiences. In the pages of this inspiring book, readers will find themselves being led through the beautiful vistas of Afghanistan, introduced to its people, and exposed to their joys and their sorrows — all through these incredible photographs.

Streets of Afghanistan is more than just a book or a photo album; it is an opportunity to expand your horizons and learn about our brothers across the world.
