Description
In this superb photographic study, film-maker Peter Yung presents a breath-taking view of one of the most exotic areas of China: Xinjiang province, the westernmost region of the country. It was here, over 2,000 years ago, that the Silk Road first linked China to the outside world. Once the main thoroughfare for the exchange of goods, culture and art between China, the Middle East and Europe, it was also along this route that the great religions of Buddhism and later Islam were to enter China. Even today, Xinjiang is still a stronghold of Islam. Yung has had the rare opportunity to travel extensively throughout Xinjiang and to penetrate some of its remotest landscape, dominated by vast expanses of desert and spectacular mountain ranges, but also the colorful lifestyles of its minorities' population. The province is home to over ten different tribes, as well as Han Chinese, and in a brief but fascinating text, he describes the rich history and customs of the Uygur people and the nomadic Kazak and Tajik.
