The First Series of The Edge - Highway:
On-going project to document the resettlement of a Kyrgyz Chinese family, descended from generations of nomads, and observe the changes imposed as their new town urbanizes after China's completion of the world's largest highway network.
The Kyrgyz Chinese are one of the Islamic minorities in China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. The new road is planned to be completed in 2013. It stretches from Kashgar to the border with Kyrgyzstan, cutting through culturally intact Kyrgyz communities. - marked in yellow circle (retrieved from 'mapresource.com') *map will appear below this.
