Skate Girls of Kabul

QATAR MUSEUM GALLERY KATARAJun. 15 until Sept. 16: Award winning photographer Jessica Fulford-Dobson presents her series of striking portraits, Skate Girls of Kabul. The series tells the extraordinary story of Afghan girls who took up skateboarding thanks to Skateistan, an Afghan charity that provides skate parks as a hook to get children from disadvantaged families back into the educational system. The portraits, viewed by more than 74,000 visitors during its two-week run at London’s Saatchi Gallery, bring to life the free-flowing spirit of these young girls who bring a new perspective and dimension to skateboarding culture.

    This is a very thought provoking exhibition with the photographer capturing the very heart of disadvantaged children in a sensitive imaginative way.
