Afghanistan’s Wakhan Corridor
Afghanistan’s Kyrgyz nomads survive in one of the most remote, high-altitude, bewitching landscapes on Earth. It’s a heavenly life—and a living hell.
A book of Matthieu Paley’s photographs of the Kyrgyz, “Pamir: Forgotten on the Roof of the World” was published in October by La Martinière in French and Knesebeck in German. He is trying to get it printed in English, too.
Photographs from his two latest trips in 2012 are featured in the February 2013 issue of National Geographic magazine, accompanied by a story by Michael Finkel.
