The hidden light of Afghanistan by Monika Bulaj
TED fellow Monika Bulaj‘s photos of rarely seen sights of Afghanistan, are featured in a recent Ted talk below alongside her warm0warming and inspiring accounts of her travels.
Monika Bulaj is a photographer and writer who explores — in Asia, Africa, Latin America and Eastern Europe — the dim areas of monotheism, where the sacred can transcend borders: Bonfires, dances, cults of the dead, possession rites. She describes outskirts and deserts, frontiers and megalopolis. And the world of the last ones: nomads, farmers, immigrants, outcasts, untouchables and impure. (excerpt from Ted’s bio)
