Martin Middlebrook has spent much of the last three years documenting the real lives of ordinary people across Afghanistan, for a project called ‘Faces of Hope’. In 2010 this project exhibited at the Kabul International Conference, and in 2011 it exhibited at the British Museum in London to support their installation on the cultural history of this extraordinary country. Middlebrook writes “‘Faces of Hope’ is now being turned into a book, an uplifting repositioning of humanity, putting the goodness in people back to the forefront. Afghanistan is a misunderstood and misrepresented country, a place and people devastated by 32 years of continual conflict. And at the heart of this destruction are the souls of 34 million ordinary people trying to survive in this land.
