Abdulhai Darya is a young emerging photographer from Afghanistan. Largely self-taught, he uses his lens to capture a unique perspective of the streets of Kabul. As an Afghani, he is able to move unobtrusively among the local people and places.
The resulting images are poignant revelations of life in contemporary Afghanistan; they are striking in their naturalism and intimacy. Darya dreams of a world without war, but at 18 years of age, war and conflict are the only realities he has known.
Darya volunteers his time working with Kabul's street kids. He uses the proceeds of his art sales to assist those most in need. itondo is proud to sponsor Abdulhai Darya's Artist profile under our ART TRANSFORMS program.
