The Peter Fraser Photographic Archive:

Afghanistan

 

During the 1970s Peter Fraser travelled to Afghanistan on three occasions in his capacity as Chairman of the short-lived Afghan Society, which was excavating the site of Old Kandahar. During these visits, he took photographs and squeezes of Greek inscriptions in Kabul Museum, and elsewhere, and other photographs of a more general nature, recording landscapes and sites north and south of the Hindu Kush, including the archaeological site of Surkh Kotal, and the huge Buddhas at Bamyan, destroyed by the Taliban in 2001.

The full collection of these photographs, squeezes, and related images, can be accessed here.
