Kabul ~ Afghanistan
« People of Kabul »
In 2013, on the invitation of my friend, photograph reporter in Afghanistan, i went to Kabul to record the sounds that would accompany her book Afghan Dream, which shows the life of the modern middle class Afghanis who has developed since Talibans fall and with the beginning of the United-States occupation. Another Afghanistan, far from the war clichés.
Yet war is everywhere, inevitable, visible, audible.
We have drove and walked through the city of Kabul and she showed me the city she has lived in for more than 10 years with her heart, attached to the people, in the company of her fixer, like an uncle to her.
Here comes one of the many series that could come out of the massive amount of recordings i have from this trip. It begins with a sunday morning on hill : People of Kabul (hills, streets, kids & kites)
I am Julie Rousse, a passionate phonographer and composer. I have walked through many places of the world looking for sounds, but not only. I love the way life unfolds in so many ways, in the human kind as in the other animal, vegetal and mineral kind. In the end we are all star dust, and we crave for sharing our experiences of life. For me it is through sound, straight from from the ears to the heart.
