Day one - workshop in Kabul

25 photographers had shown up to take part in Jan Grarup's 5 day workshop "Under the surface". During the workshop these photographers will be challenged to develop more complex stories, be more persistent and move beyond the obvious. After the first day of portfolio reviews and researching it's time to hit the street and make some pictures.

Going through the portfolios it was fantastic to see the work of especially the female photographers who showed great potential. I have traveled to Afghanistan several times over the years - and it is great to be able to give something back to a new generation of photographers. I hope in a couple of years they will be able to take over - they have the possibility to go under the surface and it is only natural that the story of Afghanistan should be seen through afghan eyes
