THE AFGHAN CAMERA

These camera where made in Afghanistan from the 40's up to 2010. Behind this bulky look the Afghan camera is a mobile photo booth. You can take black and white portraits, process the negative and make multiples copies inside in a few minutes. These are the only one with the focus system inside the box. Every else where in the world they have a below in front of the box like in Cuba, Egypt, India...

When you work with these boxes, you play with light, mechanic & chemicals.
