Photographer's Note

Silkroad travels: Pamir
Life is based partially on self reliance in Alichur. But the inhabitants cannot produce the wheat, potatoes and fruit needed for a living, these staples are offered on the market, NGO's also help providing them.

Traditional lifestlyle has not disappeared during Soviet times since the Pamir was of no strategic or economic importance to the Union. This Wakhi woman is an Ismailit muslim, she allowed me to take the picture.

I show the milkman of Alichur in the workshop section.

The JPG picture was cropped, contrast slightly enhanced, resized and sharpened.
