I lived in Peshawar from 1982 to 1992 and have traveled extensively in the North West Frontier Province and Northern Areas of Pakistan (including traveling by horse in 1982 from Passu (Hunza) to Gilgit, and in 1989 by horse from Peshawar to Chital, Kalash, Gilgit (via the Shandur Pass), Kaghan (via the Babu Sar Pass), Azad Kashmir, Islamabad, and back to Peshawar (crossing over the
Gungor Hills and Tarbella Dam). In the horsetrip gallery there is also a written account of this trip.
UPDATE: THERE IS A GALLERY (A NOVEL) WITH SOME SAMPLE CHAPTERS AND PHOTOS FROM MY NEW BOOK 'SOME TIME ON THE FRONTIER-A PAKISTAN JOURNAL' AVAILABLE ON AMAZON AND OTHER SELECT OUTLETS! CHECK IT OUT!
Some of the photos from Pakistan and India galleries were taken by my oh-so-mysterious brother Mirza and his x-wife Ayesha. I have tried to remove my by-line on those photos, but sometimes it is difficult as it was quite some time ago and I was right there when most of them were taken
I was in Afghanistan from 1975 to 1979, and Kashmir, Ladakh, and northern India in 1980. I will share as much as I can here of all of this time in some incredible lands. God Willing!
These are not the most recent photos (most are scans of the original photos), and I am not really a photographer, but I have been in some incredible places with a camera. I consider this more of a photo documentary than a photography exibition (so please excuse the lack of info as to cameras I've used. It's been more of 'what's ever in my hand at the moment').
Also I've included links under MUSICAN'S PHOTOS in the Peshawar Pakistan Gallerieshttp://www.pbase.com/noorkhan/musicans and some of the Afghanistan Galleries, if you'd like to hear their music.
I see some of your photos out there and I'm a bit shy to show mine. My skill is my subjects, not my photography. But still, it's all worth sharing.
There is also digital artwork and digital caligraphy.
It's all worth sharing.
If you enjoy, please leave your comments. Always appreciated.
