Day 9~ June 9th~ Xinjiang

life must go on

In the midst of a city being demolished, life refuses to stop and be arrested. Kashgar is rich with craftsmen of all kinds and to survive they must continue crafting and go on selling.

In the streets of the old city, this old metal craftsman was selling his creations while hammering away at a piece of metal that will become another household tool when he is done.

  1. I love this picture, it is wonderfully composed and it tells such a story of stoicism and human dignity.

  2. What a powerful image. (And I love the turquoise colors interspersed in the photo!) ~tricia
