Photographer's Note

Darkh is famous as a village of dancers, singers and jugglers touring throughout Tajikistan in winters and turning into ordinary peasants in summers. Such words were written by Sergey Mstislavskiy in his novel “Roof of the World” in 1905. More than a century later, we saw Darkh as a calm, picturesque and interesting village on the Zarafshan Mountain Range, with 2260 inhabitants. The distance to Ayni, the center of this administrative district, is 60 km from there.
