Resource: Qandahar in Images and Empires

At the Crossroads: Qandahar in Images and Empires features the earliest known photographs of Qandahar, Afghanistan, taken between 1880 and 1881 at the end of the Second Anglo-Afghan War. Today, they offer insights into the region, its local populations, and its rich cultural traditions.

The resource offers a free publication, an online preview of images, and stories which were developed by Getty in partnership with the Aga Khan Trust for Culture.
