The Oregon Coast Council for the Arts and Newport Visual Arts Center are excited to present the photography of Mark Svendsen in an extraordinary new exhibit titled “Afghanistan Before the Wars.” The exhibit is open now and runs through May 19 at the Olive Street Gallery inside the Newport Performing Arts Center.

Afghanistan has not always been a battleground. Unfortunately, all that most Americans know of this country has been gained from news stories, photographs, and video segments from a period dominated by violence, destruction, and destitution. The other Afghanistan, the one that existed before the wars, comprised a beautiful and austere land of high snow-covered mountains, tumbling mountain streams, emerald-green fields of irrigated wheat and rice, and arid deserts.
