In 1996, the Taliban banned photography in Afghanistan. When the regime was removed in 2001, their suppression of free speech and press disappeared. Since then, photography has become an outlet for Afghans determined to show the hidden stories of their country.
In this coming year, as foreign troops pull out of the country, international media will inevitably follow. The Taliban can gain back control and the future of journalism in Afghanistan is unknown. Alexandria Bombach & Mo Scarpelli started a kick-starter campaign and achieved their goal, raising money to help Afghan photographers. We think that photographers make great videographers and so we love sharing videos by 500px members with you. Last time we featured New Zealand Night Sky & Bela Kiss. For more videos browse the blog and send in your videos to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to see what you filmed!
