Artist's Description

In the forgotten alleys of Kashgar there is a quietness, an eerie lack of activity that is a clear manifestation of abandonment. This shot captures a common sight. With money, commerce, growth, development and opportunity in abundance on the ‘Chinese side’ of town, the Uyghurs are left behind. It’s easy and selfish, as a tourist, to be caught up in the ‘romantic’, traditional way of life in which occupied people like the Uyghurs still live. It is important however to step back and appreciate the disgraceful inequality of benifit from prosperity.
