"Afghanistan is one of the last places on earth where photographers used a simple type of instant camera called the kamra-e-faoree for means of making a living. The hand-made wooden camera is both camera and darkroom in one and generations of Afghans have had their portraits taken with it, usually for identity photographs. At one stage it was even outlawed when former rulers of Afghanistan, the Taliban, banned photography, forcing photographers to hide or destroy their tools. In 2011 Muhammad Usman, one of the old school photographers in Kabul, told us "Come back with a book!". His sentiment was echoed by every one of the Afghan photographers we met who shared a dream to have their craft remembered. Afghan Box Camera, the book, published in the winter of 2013, is the realisation of that dream. Combining images from the 1950s to the present-day it illustrates the techniques and artistry of a previously untold and visually enthralling photographic culture, preserving forever the story of the kamra-e-faoree."

KHAN,O., From Kashmir to Kabul Photography 1860-1900, München 2002. Hardcover oblong 28,5 x 24 cm. 208 pag. met 136 zwart-wit foto's.

CONTENT:
Main chapters:
  • Peshawar and the North-West Frontier
  • The Move to Muree
  • Kashmir:  The Quest for gold medals
  • The Baker & Burke 1872 catalogue
  • The Second Afghan War, 1878-80
  • John Burke, Photo Artist
  • Lahore: Witness to empire

From Kashmir to Kabul is the first book to piece together the remarkable careers of Baker and Burke. No photographers of the Raj era witnessed more wars, discoveries, news events and human diversity than did these two Irishmen. Few encountered the kinds of adverse conditions, hauling heavy equipment and glass plates over steep mountain ranges, and mixing chemicals at dangerously high altitudes than Baker and Burke. Based on decades of research, this book chronicles their early days in Peshawar and their move to Muree, the Himalayan hill station on the border of Kashmir. It follows their documenting of the Afghan Wars, some of the earliest war photography, and their return to the plains of Lahore, where they continued to photograph the region's people and landscape. Baker and Burke's story is also the story of photography itself, a medium that was evolving at a dizzying pace-as quickly as the world they sought to capture was changing
