In an exciting sequel to his 2009 Middle East trip, John set out in 2011 to follow a spectacular branch of the Silk Road from the Caucasus across the Caspian Sea to Samarkand. He then turned south-east to explore the High Pamirs of Tajikistan and Afghanistan – a region well-known to Marco Polo – before finishing in Kashgar, China’s so-called ‘Crossroads of Asia’.

“It was a treat to be given such an insight . . . not least through your wonderful photographs.”
