Everyday Life in Afghanistan

A user experience researcher who works for Frog Design, British-born Jan Chipchase has the important job of understanding the way technology influences different cultures. His work has taken him around the world and has earned him a place right next to Steve Jobs in Forbes magazine's 2010 list of The Smartest People in Tech.

Aside from Japan, one of the most interesting and eye-opening places he's been to is Afghanistan. His goal was to look at the impact of mobile money services in that country. Along the way, Chipchase has taken some truly unique photos of everyday life in Afghanistan, giving us an inside look at this country's incredible culture.
