Portraits of women made by focusing a modern digital camera onto the glass plate inside an old-fashioned Afghan box camera. Six years after the ousting of the Taliban regime, the lives of many women in Afghanistan remain unaltered. Honor killings, forced marriage, domestic violence and denial of education continue to affect women daily.
