Monochrome Kashgar.

I had plans for more stories from Xinjiang; however, the more I try to put pen to paper the more I realise I don’t want to add words to what I’ve already said. What I do have are some photos. Photos that show the mundanity of life in Kashgar’s Old Town. Somehow I believe they belong in B&W. Perhaps because the normality they seem to show is so unlike today’s Xinjiang to be a thing of the past, of a time where everything was monochrome.

    I love the one of the little boys playing in the big shadow. And the vines – wow – they almost seem to be symbiotic with the walls!

  4. Wonderful collection of photos. The fact that they are in black and white certainly lends an extra special touch and addition of character.

  5. Sometimes pictures speak better for themselves than trying to use words to describe impressions or experiences. I love that you decided to share them in black and white.

    Black and white, in this Instagram era, is underrated. It gives a whole different mood that cuts to the essentials. Nicely done.

    Love the more monochrome on these. They add an extra dimension of mystery to the place. And I totally get the feeling of letting images do the speaking and keeping words to a minimum. Well done, sir.
