This on-line exhibition of 32 photographs has been my private pleasure for a year or so. Now, as the western powers prepare for a new war on Afghanistan, these pictures show a deeper view of that remarkable country than we see on TV.
Luke Powell took these pictures in the 1970s, made dye transfer prints in the 80s, and published the web site in the 90s. From what I see on the web site, I imagine the dye transfer prints look sumptuous. But you should read the short essay he added in September 2001.
