World traveler and award winning photographer Lauren Salkin has been taking pictures for years all over the world from Africa to Thailand.

In 2006 Ms. Salkin received a grant to teach photography to students in Afghanistan at Aina Media & Culture Center in Kabul. She was able to garner support by National Geographic who donated cameras that were used by the students in her project.
