I recently curated a show at the 71A Gallery on Leonard Street in East London for Skateistan. Skateistan began as a Kabul-based Afghan NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) and is now an International non-profit charity providing skateboarding and educational programming in Afghanistan, Cambodia and Pakistan. Skateistan is non-political, independent, and inclusive of all ethnicities, religions and social backgrounds.
The work I curated was a mixture of photography representing street life in Kabul and photos taken by Skateistan students of their daily lives. Using disposable cameras they captured their homes, friends and of course skateboarding.
