sgalpin74 So proud of my dear friend and partner in crime @sarmenzies speaking today at @mountainfilm with Fawzia Koofi and other afghan voices at the symposium. Two years ago we interviewed her at the Afghan Parliament about women's rights for production of @afghancycles. So thrilled that Afghanistan is a central theme this year! #useyourvoice #womeninfilm #afghanistan 6h

sgalpin74 There's an amazing group of kids converging in Telluride for @mountainfilm from this school. They just raised $10,000 for my work in Afghanistan to support girls on bikes. You know these kids will be rock stars when they have dedicated bike trailers for their educational programming. If a group of middle schoolers asks you for an interview, you say yes! @mtn2mtn #useyourvoice #sbms @livcycling #livbeyond @ospreypacks @skratchlabs #bikedriven #santabarbara 22h

sgalpin74 These ladies. The first production crew of @afghancycles in 2013 in front of Darul Aman palace in Kabul. @sarmenzies @claudialopezphoto and @whitneycclapper and I have morphed and expanded to include @jennygnichols who went on the second production trip last fall and @annabrones on as producer. Work in progress sneak peek with @sarmenzies this weekend at @Mountainfilm and both @annabrones and myself will be authors at the reading frenzy. #womeninfilm #kabul #afghanistan @patagonia 1d

sgalpin74 Fika in Kabul. I met @annabrones at @Mountainfilm in 2010 and she joined me in Afghanistan two years later to help on Streets of Afghanistan project. She's now a part of @afghancycles production crew and she will be signing books, Fika and Culinary Cyclist, at the @mountainfilm reading frenzy this weekend. What's Fika got to do with Afghanistan? This. Picnics in the Women's Garden of Kabul after setting up the fourth Streets of Afghanistan exhibition. #afghanistan #fika #foodporn #kabul #badasswomen 1d

sgalpin74 Fall of 2012. I took the Frame by Frame crew to Afghanistan with the intent of making a film about Afghan photographers and the power of voice. Their film will screen at @Mountainfilm this weekend and those photographers will be guests. At the same time I was launching the Streets of Afghanistan exhibition as a series of pop up streetart shows across the country and @annabrones came with to assist me with the project. We piled into a taxi on the first night in Kabul to get the best pizza in town. Photographer @dizinno rounded out the all female crew with some masculine energy. #knowyourhistory #afghanistan #kabul 2d

sgalpin74 In honor of @Mountainfilm I'm posting photos of friends and colleagues from Afghanistan or Afghan project that will be converging in Telluride over the next few days! Starting with the fabulous @sarmenzies filming alongside Farzana Wahidy in 2013 on a deserted road north of Kabul, both of whom will be speaking onstage at the symposium. I love this shot as its two amazing camera women I respect, one American and one Afghan, working to tell the story of the afghan women's cycling team. @afghancycles #afghanistan #photography 2d
