The Afghan Box Camera Project provides a record of the kamra-e-faoree (instant camera) which as a living form of photography is on the brink of disappearing in Afghanistan.

In this video, Mirwais Hakeemy colours a box camera photograph with kite paper. The photo was taken by Mirzaman, a senior photographer in Kabul.
