Matthieu Paley

Limited edition of 30
Archival Pigment Print
67 x 90 cm

After two weeks travel along the frozen Wakhan river, which is the only way to access the High Pamir in winter, one finds this view from Andamin towards the settlement of Mulk Ali, the heart of the High Pamir in Afghanistan. Beyond the hills in the distance is the Chinese border. The Afghan Kyrgyz live all year round on this barren plateau at an altitude of 4200 metres.
