Featuring twenty-six haunting images from twelve Afghani photographers, the display will provide a rare insight into the world of the Afghan child. Australian audiences will be taken on a journey to a country where roughly half the population is under 18 years of age, and many of the children have been born into war-time.

The images were taken by Afghanistan’s only independent photomedia institute, the AINA Photo Agency. 

The show closing event & silent auction will be held by Mahboba Rawi, founder of Australian-based aid organisation Mahboba’s Promise.

All proceeds from the auction of the photographs will be going to the AINA Photo Agency to continue the training of Afghani photographers and photojournalists.

Date: Tuesday 18 May, 2010

Time: 7.30 pm for drinks and nibblies

Silent auction will end at 8.30 pm

Venue: Airport North Gallery

 

About AINA Photo Agency

The brainchild of French photojournalists Manoocher and Reza Deghati, AINA was conceived in 2001 with the aim of providing media training to the devastated society of Afghanistan. Since 2002, the agency has trained over fifty students in all facets of photojournalism from practical to ethics and theory, mainly via international tutors who volunteer their time and skills to the program (including Australian photojournalist Travis Beard). AINA Photo Agency provides images of Afghanistan to some of the world’s leading organisations including The World Bank, National Geographic, Lonely Planet and World Press Photo.
