Afghanistan in video
Lukas Augustin fell in love with Afghanistan while living there from 2006 to 2008. Earlier this year he travelled back there with his then-fiancée Salome to show her the place he loved. While there he shot this film and captured these images.
From the filmmakers:
As each of us has his own impression of Afghanistan that is predominantly marked with pictures of foreign forces, explosions and terror, we were privileged to have access to capture daily life and portrait some people of Afghanistan. We hope the pictures you know will merge with the pictures you see and will enrich your view on the country in the Hindu Kush.
Having spent a little time in Afghanistan, I can attest to the beauty of both the people and the country. It surprises people when they ask me what the most beautiful place I have visited is and I respond with Afghanistan, but it is true.
