The Skate Girls of Kabul
“It’s hard not to think of Afghan girls skateboarding as an unlikely clash of cultures. But when you see these children tearing around the skate park, shrieking with laughter, your preconceptions drop away... I hope that this collection captures something of their spirit: their joy in life, their individuality, and their community.” — Jessica Fulford-Dobson
These photos by Jessical Fulford-Dobson were exhibited in 2017. As an antidote to all hideousness of last week, I revistied these images.
These girls are not allowed to ride bicycles so they learned to skateboard, defying gender restrictions.
