Photographer's Note

At a roadside market on the Silk Road between Tashkent and Samarqand, I met a woman who would, for a few Uzbek "sum," ward off evil spirits and negative problems by walking around you three times - covering you with the smoke from a burning herb called "Hazorispan" (the "Herb of a Thousand Problems").
