Uzbekistan is renowned as one of Central Asia’s most culturally rich destinations, with ancient cities, spellbinding architecture and history. Created by travel photographer Christopher Wilton-Steer, a new project on the Silk Road has been announced that includes documentation of the striking beauty of the nation’s palaces and mosques.
The project "aims to share the wonders of the Silk Road with broader audiences, celebrate the diversity of cultural expressions, highlight examples of how historical practices, rituals and customs live on today, and also reveal some of the connections between what appear at first glance to be very different cultures. It also aims to help build bridges of interest and understanding between distant cultures and challenge perceptions of less well known and understood parts of the world.
