Kirsten Johnson’s Cameraperson is a highly personal take on her experiences of shooting various documentaries around the world.
On 29 June 2016, the War Art Reporting and Memory (WARM) Festival hosted the exhibition “Afghanistan: After Enduring Freedom” at the Java Gallery in downtown Sarajevo. The exhibition featured photographs captured by Andrew Quilty, an Australian freelance photographer currently based in Kabul, Afghanistan.
After years of civil war and oppressive Taliban control, taking photographs became a crime, which caused a complete media blackout in Afghanistan. When the US invaded the country in 2001, fledgling free press emerged and a newfound fascination with the power of photography was brought to light.
