The Noah Abrams 'Skateistan' skateboard spread exposes a subculture unknown to most of the western world. I know I associate the country with images of a war zone and swirling tumbleweeds in the desert sand. Noah Abrams, however, has captured these amazing pictures to show the emerging skateboard culture in Afghanistan and give the world a glimpse beyond what we see in the news.

The Noah Abrams Skateistan spread features Afghani skateboarders in a series of locations around the country, which shows not only the beautiful scenery, but also local skateboarders doing their thing.
