Young Uyghurs, inhabitants of the cities of Xinjiang, stock breeders on the Kashgar Animal Market, wine growers and bakers in the streets, wandering Kazakh on the banks of the Sayram lake… Chinese men and women, but Uyghur above all. The features of these faces say a lot about this area, so close to the people of Central Asia and their wide culture and history. So many proud faces and important encounters which testify of the richness of this Muslim China, still too often ignored.
