Skate Girls of Kabul Exhibition, at Katara until October 20
Award-winning photographer Jessica Fulford-Dobson will present her critically-acclaimed series of portraits, Skate Girls of Kabul, in her first show in the Middle East. Presented by Qatar Museums, the exhibition will be at the QM Gallery Katara. The portraits tell the extraordinary story of Afghan girls who took up skateboarding, thanks to Skateistan, an Afghan charity that provides skate parks as a hook to get children from disadvantaged families back into the educational system. The striking images bring to life the hopeful spirit of these young girls that show a new perspective and dimension to skateboarding culture – one that shows strength in the face of adversity.
