The Afghan Folio features 32 Kodak Dye Transfer prints of Afghanistan by photographer Luke Powell.
Powell traveled to Afghanistan during the 1970s and early 1980s to document the beauty and peace of Afghanistan. His photographs show farmlands, villages, and daily lives of Afghans prior to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979.
The Library acquired The Afghan Folio in 1989.
