Portfolio - The Silk Road
Ian Berry
Famed for centuries as the only land link to the Orient, the Silk Route lies at the core of Western imagination of the east. As one of the first travelers ever to make the journey by train, Ian Berry journeyed from Turkey in the west, through Iran and the newly independent states of Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan and the vast stretch of western China, before ending his journey in Beijing.
