Exhibitions

December 2021 Exhibition: Women in Transition; 20 years ago in Afghanistan

December 2021 Exhibition: Women in Transition; 20 years ago in Afghanistan by Androniki Christodoulou
December 4 - January 7, 2022

I visited Afghanistan approximately 20 years ago, during the "War on Terror" following the September 11th attack on the World Trade Center. Most of the news from there was about the war, however I was asked to photograph a school in Herat funded by Greek government.

My first impression upon arrival in Kabul felt like I had traveled 200 years back in time. The city was still functioning despite having bombed out buildings standing next to ones that were open for business and streets bustling with an array of horse drawn carts and cars. Despite the conflict in the country, the Afghani people were doing their best to carry on with their daily lives. It was such a visual place to photograph with stoic bearded men with ready smiles and women in blue burqas, several of whom I found out wore makeup and in colorful dresses underneath.
