Relying on freelance journalism in Afghanistan’s “Land of Secrets”
Tired of seeing interest and quality reporting leave Afghanistan with the war, a new outlet called razistan.org has set out to help freelance photo/videographers in Kabul cover the country’s less documented people and events.
via its Tumblr:
Razistan.org aims to help give Afghanistan the attention it demands. Our core project is a website of unique photo essays and short video documentaries that bring into vivid relief not only the war and its participants but also the country and its people. Contributors include both award-winning Kabul-based photojournalists from around the world and local Afghan photographers and videographers. There is much more to the war than the mainstream media has shown. The purpose of Razistan — or “land of secrets” — is to reveal these untold stories.
See their Kickstarter, as well as this post from yesterday, which laments what mainstream war reporting has become.
