Photographer's Note

A traditional saying goes that:
"Samarkand is the beauty of the earth, but Bukhara is the beauty of the spirit, and in all other parts of the globe light descends upon the earth, from holy Bukhara it ascends"

This wonderful part of Uzbekistan really comes to life for me, a city of the ancient Silkroad full of stories which shows much of the original charm where history weaves itself effortlessly around the present-day lives of its people.

Ranked as the most prestigious educational establishment in Bukhara for centuries, this 15th century Mir-i-Arab Madrassah with its incredible photogenic glazed tiles, mirrors the facade when the light paints the marvellous colours all round........
