    It has been very rich reading your blog and the work you did in AFghanistan. I heard of your work through Adam Ward several years ago. We tried to meet up in NY, but timing was off. I will be in your area early next March and would love to try and touch base. My work is in Mongolia. It is a different rhythm, and there is not the conflict, but the challenging circumstances.

    I am working on an International Art Show called What Can the Earth Teach Us About Love? I worked with a group in Kabul in 2005 on an art show What Does Peace Look Like?

    Do you think your group would have an interest in participating in the What Can The eArth TEach Us About Love? I look forward to hearing from you. I am in Bellingham, Washington. Susan Bradbury

    Details that bring out the irony in Modern Life. New cars alongside corrugated metal housing. trash heaps and unpaved roads alongside bold brand name advertising.
    Like the Rural South here. Like Postwar Italian Neorealism.
    Hoping by now you were able to get back all the video you left in Afghanistan.
    You seem to have an eye for the here and now – perhaps what is needed is a separate video unit that shares your thinking, concentrated on shaping the visual content (like adopting a shooting method that is less intrusive and more intimate) while you concentrate of the outreach, so you’re not wearing two hats at once.
    The plan is still open to scrounge whatever footage you brought back, perhaps bookend it with more we can shoot here, and make a nice package you can use to score some bread to get back ASAP- and take a groovy cameraman with you. 🙂
