Qyzyl Qorum Afghanistan
Qyzyl Qorum Afghanistan (2008)
High in the Pamir mountains of Afghanistan, a remnant group of less than 1000 Kyrgyz dwell in one of the remotest and most inhospitable environments occupied by people.
These two young men are sons of the Khan, a tribal chieftain. They are standing with their backs to the â€œBad-e Wakhanâ€, the infamous winter wind which blows through in the High Pamir. Their painted nails indicate they have recently attended a wedding party.
