Photographer's Note

A scene at Kashgar open-air livestock market early in a cold misty morning where live had already begun and lots of happening in the crowd. Interesting how the different ethnic such Ugyhur, Khirgiz, Tadjik and Kazak farmers, buyers and sellers managed to make their way there to buy & sell their beasts.

It was very difficult to get a picture of anything with all these crowds furthermore the low light was quite a challenge. So this was from one of the crowds with common purpose in mind.

For many present, they will have worked all year and it is on this day that they get paid. It is today that they know whether it has been a good year or poor. There is a tremendous feeling of camaraderie, this is also the meeting place where friends meet and talk.....
