Photographer's Note

We stayed overnight with a family in Dekhistan, an old Silk Road city in the desert in south-east Turkmenistan. An elderly couple living with their youngest daughter "in the middle of nowhere" - the daughter was the only one still to be married. I found the father awake early morning, the daughter still sleeping on the floor in their simple house. His wife was the clear boss of the family - during our stay, he almost didn't say a word.
