Description

In memory of the courage and the dedication of AP photographer Anja Niedringhaus Freundeskreis Willy-Brandt-Haus and Society for Humanistic Photography (GfHF) present the exhibition Beloved Afghanistan – Photographs by Anja Niedringhaus.

Anja Niedringhaus has worked in numerous war and crisis regions worldwide. She was one of the few international photojournalists, who repeatedly traveled through Afghanistan. With enormous empathy and artistic sensitivity she portrayed the people there in all different life situations. Beloved Afghanistan shows for the very first time her series about female members of parliament in Afghanistan as well as portraits of Afghan voters. A whole chapter of the exhibition is dedicated to her last photographs of the presidential elections in 2014.

Curated by Gisela Kayser, Freundeskreis Willy-Brandt-Haus and Katharina Mouratidi, Society for Humanistic Photography (GfHF).

Parallel to this exhibition, the multimedia exhibition »Undaunted: Four women in Kabul« by Lela Ahmadzai will be opening as well.
