Skate Girls of Kabul
The Ismaili Centre presents Skate Girls of Kabul, a photography exhibition by the award-winning British photographer Jessica Fulford-Dobson. Spending six weeks in Afghanistan during 2013 and 2014, she documented young girls participating in a unique programme organised by Skateistan, an award-winning international non-profit organisation founded in Kabul, which empowers children and youth through skateboarding and education in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa. Fulford-Dobson’s engaging photographs deftly undermine cultural, religious and gender stereotypes and present an uncomplicated celebration of childhood and girl power.
The exhibition at the Ismaili Centre Dubai is in collaboration with the Aga Khan Museum Toronto, Canada.
