Central Asia Lite

Photographed while driving through a waterfall on the way out of the Pamirs. This is the perfect analogy for how I see my most recent project.
I've got to get back to Central Asia. I feel like I missed so much that was right before my eyes. I don't think I've got enough visual evidence about what life in the Countries in Between is really like.

Here are a few pictures that I've been thinking about. I haven't printed anything yet.

Khorog-- The capital of the Tajik Pamirs.

The next three pictures were made along a ridge parallel to the main road in Khorog.

This is the staircase in the Khorog State University where my wife, Vivian, was teaching.
