I arrived to Kashgar through Kirgizstan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan, going along the once known Silk Road. Kashgar, in the independent region of Xingjian in China, is braced by the desert of Taklimakan.
The people of Kashgar are Uzbeks, Muslim Uyghurs, Tajiks, Kyrgyz and Han Chinese.
Photographing Kashgar revealed a new pace of time in another reality. At times I felt I was in a film from the nineteenth century, within scenes of muted colors and erratically unfocused images.
Kashgar aroused a passion to search in the faces of old and young, men and women, the united mark of mankind when we raise our eyes to the splendor of the stars with our answerable questions.
