Afghanistan is one of the last places where photographers used a simple type of instant camera called the kamra-e-faoree  (Instant Camera) for means of making a living. The hand-made wooden camera is both camera and darkroom in one and generations of Afghans have had their portraits taken with it, usually for identity photographs. At one stage it was even outlawed when former rulers of Afghanistan, the Taliban, banned photography, forcing photographers to hide or destroy their tools.This camera has a fitted darkroom internally. There are two trays of chemicals which includes the developer and fixer fitted inside the camera. After the photographers are taken, they go through the developer and fixer and thereafter washed with water outside the camera. This process of creating a photograph takes only a couple of minutes. After the creation of the first negative, the camera can produce multiple copies derived from the exact negative.
