Ulupamir

Ulupamir (meaning Great Pamir) is a village in Turkey of mostly Kyrgyz Turks who came from the Great Pamir and Little Pamir in the Wakhan, northern Afghanistan, in 1982. Pamir Turks first fled to Pakistan but they did not adjust well to the hot Pakistani climate and lost lives. With the invitation from Turkey they moved to a land near Van Erciş. This is a photo reportage about a culture on the verge of change.
