Sandra Calligaro, a French photographer, followed the evolution of Afghan society for 8 years. With the book Afghan dream, she offers us another vision of the country: a photographic, poetic and journalistic testimony against the usual media prism.
The author unveils the daily life of an emerging middle class, losing its bearings and looking for escape routes after 13 years of international presence. The intervention of the coalition forces, the return of the diaspora and the major aid effort have favoured the renewal of the middle class and the emergence of a young generation in the capital.
