 Afghanistan in the late 1920s

1 of 9




A late French photographer by the name of Frédéric Gadmer spent several months exploring Afghanistan in 1928. He captured some of the countries landmarks which have since been destroyed. The country is nothing like how we see it today, the manicured gardens, historical buildings and breathtaking mountain ranges show a different side to the country. The photos were taken as part of planet photography project which was brought about by French philanthropist Albert Kahn and are now placed in the Albert Kahn museum in Paris.
