Pop-up exhibition takes snapshots of Afghan life to streets


A pop-up photography exhibition called Streets of Afghanistan has been on display in public areas of Kabul.

Previously on show in the US, it brings together works from leading Western and Afghan photographers, representing different elements of life in the country, and showing it is more than just a war zone.

Exhibition director Shannon Galpin, from nonprofit organisation Mountain2Mountain, spoke about how she hoped to challenge how Afghanistan is represented both to the outside world, and within the country's borders.
