Farzana Wahidy: Life for Women in Afghanistan

Farzana Wahidy, recipient of a Documentary Photography Project Production Grant, has photographed women in different life and work situations in Afghanistan. While most stories on women in Afghanistan focus solely on the negative aspects of their lives, Wahidy aims to capture the full breadth of their experiences. Her photographs capture daily life at home, work, and school, as well as special occasions such as weddings. She also includes images of women who have suffered physical and emotional violence as a result of religious restrictions and traditional customs.
