Апрель 27, 2012 «Для меня фотожурналистика – это инструмент общения, способ провоцировать и воодушевлять зрителя, а также документировать историю.

Питер Тёрнли – известный фотожурналист; за сорок лет работы он создал множество незабываемых образов, раскрывающих глубину повседневности, ее радости и горести.

Two Rivers 2007-11 - Carolyn Drake Photography The Amu Darya and Syr Darya rivers stretch from the western edge of China across Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan, spanning a distance of 2,500km. They are the lifeblood of the vast, landlocked region between China, Russia, Iran and Afghanistan. The Greeks knew the two rivers as the Oxus and the Jaxartes. An islamic hadith holds that they are two of the four rivers that flow into Paradise. The Silk Route linking China to Europe followed the paths of the rivers.
