A small but industrious group of photographers have worked the streets of Kabul for decades. Using simple box cameras, they have captured husbands going to war and sons about to come of age or be married. The man’s studio is actually the cubicle in which he sits. After the picture is taken, the negative is developed in the small bowl at his feet.

'You get a mix of association between this information about the subject and a likeness of them in the final (photo),' Van de Roer told Slate.com.

Generally, blue represents feelings, emotions and instinct while green suggests growth, healing and abundance. Yellow represents optimism, youth and dreaming while orange highlights kindness, vitality and communication. A person whose aura is red is often dynamic and creative but nervous.
Smeared Skies - Matt Molloy
One day he began experimenting with time-lapse sequences by taking hundreds of images as the sun set and the clouds moved through the sky. Molloy then digitally stacked the numerous photos to reveal shifts in color and shape reminiscent of painterly brush strokes that smeared the sky. You can learn more about his “timestack” technique over at Digital Photo Magazine and prints are available here. (via bored panda)
