J.M. Fritz has joined forces with the photo editor class of the Ostkreuz School of Photography to launch a captivating print sale derived from her work during her travels to Afghanistan. Whether you’re hunting for a meaningful gift or hoping to spruce up your home office during these chilly months, you’re in luck-the print sale is live until the fifth of December and every composition is something truly special.

The moments she captures on camera are intimate, colorful, often buoyant, and emphasize the beauty in cultural connection. The ten prints which have been selected by a group of photo editing Students of the Ostkreuz School of Photography for this sale are wholly reflective of J.M. Fritz’s passion for paying homage to the disempowered. 

J.M. Fritz has travelled extensively to the Middleeast to capture its diverse culture and people, and has personally connected with many locals, and as such the students of the Ostkreuz School of Photography have organized for all proceeds from this sale to be donated to the Afghan Women’s Association.
