Street Photography in Kabul

Street-KabulToronto. Member Russ Forfar, a frequent participant at our fairs and an independent camera repair expert sent me this link to a Youtube video about a street photographer in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan.

These itinerant photographers with their ubiquitous “picture in moments” cameras have all but disappeared in this day of digital cameras,  smart phones, and selfies.

This Afghanistani uses photographic paper to make a negative image and then rephotographs this image to create his positive – a much longer process than the common old fashioned North America use of a tintype to create the positive image in a single pass.

Take a moment to step back in time and watch this gentleman at work.
