Some Photos From 1995 Trip to Uzbekistan

These images are scans of old slides taken during a 6 week trip to
Uzbekistan in 1995. I have stacks more sitting with all my other old slides
waiting to be cleaned, sorted and scanned. Maybe I’ll finally get to that
project this winter?

The image of the two older fellows was taken in the market in Osh, Kyrgystan
on a day trip from Andijan in the Fergana Valley. That market was one of
the two places on this planet where I most felt like I’d stepped back in
time. Even there, if I looked up to the surrounding hills I could see
Soviet style apartment blocks.

My other time warp experience was in Fez’s traditional Market the following
year. I’ll post some of those shots eventually too.
