For this trip, the photographer left his digital cameras behind for his “old” Leica. This choice not only allowed him to “travel light”, but moreover, working with a chromatic film enabled him to capture a depth of field that a digital camera simply cannot deliver. And there is no shortage of depth among the arid mountain regions, where spectacular sand storms trouble the landscape from time to time.

A world caught between troubling contradictions, where the horse remains the sole means of transportation, where villages never stay in the same place more than six months, a rustic and simple world where its inhabitants have the generosity and kindness of those who have little.
