This Is What Afghanistan's Youth Is Really Like
Photographer Ruvan Wijesooriya gave the students of Mir Bacha Kot, Afghanistan, disposable cameras to photograph the world around them. The results are as beautiful as they are eye-opening.
Photographer Ruvan Wijesooriya traveled to the Roots of Peace School in the village of Mir Bacha Kot, Afghanistan, and gave the students several disposable cameras to photograph their unique perspective of the world around them.
The Roots of Peace School was built in 2006 after the infrastructure of Mir Bacha Kot was destroyed during the war. It was a project developed by the Roots of Peace organization, which de-mined the land of explosive ordnance and eventually helped the locals to make that land farmable.
