13 Everyday Life of An Afghanistan Car Wash

Everyday Life of An Afghanistan Car Wash

Posted on September 24, 2011 by team

Even in belligerent Afghanistan cars need to be washed.

Taking into consideration how seedy and dusty roads in Kabul are, the car wash business here has always remained actual. It also provides more than a hundred Afghan men and boys with at least some money in one of the poorest countries in the world.

These pictures were made in November 2009.

Workers having a break.

Then immediately back to work.

Probably this is a son of one of the car wash workers.

    ER folks, thanks for putting all these photos of Afghanistan on the site. This is the only place I know of where we can see easily how Afghanistan looked then and how it looks now.

    “Water to the car wash comes by pumps, that feed it from underground wells”.
    I don’t want to imagine if somebody are wandering during the night around this unfenced well, or worse… children.

    Karzai’s probably getting a cut of this, too. Corruption’s everywhere but it hurts more in a poor country. Need to vacuum out the “old boys” and put in some young blood.

    Very thorough job, I like how they take out the seats.

  6. Some says:

    The site slowly drifts to become a source on Afganistan war propaganda.

      I don’t think so. Soviet (or Russians) and Americans haven’t accepted their responsibility of tearing apart that sad part of the world.

    Right. Probably dilutes the filth.

    They should come to Dubai and see how to clean a car with a cup of water.

    A shame that they are black and white.

    I don’t think it lends anything to the quality or artistry of the pictures and rather makes them boring and, in places, difficult to perceive the contrasts.

  10. Hi, this wonderful photos

    Very good photo report, but ruined a bit by black and white photography. Nothing can compete with color. Shame for black and white. It does not add anything, does not create anything special, only ruins the perception of reality.
