The life of Tajiks living in Xinjiang


These photos document the life of Tajiks living in the Tashkurghan Autonomous County in Xinjiang, China. Life is hard in this cold place on the Pamirs where there are vast stretches of the Gobi Desert. Tajiks have been living a semi-nomadic life here for generations, mainly relying on livestock raising for a tenacious survival.Fan_Li_China_Shortlist_Professional_Candid_2016_1PR(1)
