Day 3~ June 3rd~ Xinjiang

at the barbershop~ Kashgar

To see a culture soaked in tradition, to walk the old streets and be filled with awe, to feel welcome at every corner, to get invited into homes of strangers and to be presented with their finest bread, nuts and sweets, to be amazed by exotic ways of life and to be deeply saddened by the fact that it is all going to disappear so soon…

  1. Great post, Mimo! Yes I’ve been offered muslim hospitality in wild places – in places where the offer of hospitality could be the difference between survival or not, and that has left a strong impression with me.

    And this is a very good picture. The subjects are very strong, the colours are bright and wonderful, and taking it off kilter is just perfect – great portraits! Adrian

  2. Wow love the composition

  3. Civilization is not so civilised…

  4. Hi,
    What a fantastic photo, well done. 🙂

  5. That is a wonderful piece of life as it has existed for many, many years. You’re right; you can feel the changes coming, so these are precious images.

  6. All of your pictures are so amazing!!

  7. Wonderful. I like everyday life photo, and this is a great one.

  8. That reminds me…I need to cut my hair again.
    Fun slice-of-life image. Can almost taste the delicacies you mention (bread, nuts & sweets).

  9. Done the way to has been done.
