Instagram in Afghanistan

Instagram, with its inbuilt network, ease of use and range of filters has quickly been gaining traction as the mobile photo tool of choice for those about town.  But how wonderful to see it put to such gorgeous and thrillingly unexpected use in a New York Times Afgani photo-spread by Ben Lowy.  The spread documents the everyday actives we tend to forget about when discussing ongoing violence in the region, seen through a lens that feels disarmingly immediate.  More pictures from Lowy’s Middle Eastern travels on his website.
