Pamir Book - week 1


Pamir - Forgotten on the roof the world
This is the story of a book that took its time to come alive ; over 10 years of my life with a continuing obsession: the remote mountains of High Asia (Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan). We just finished the layout – over 220 images in a 256 pages book, published at the Edition de la Martiniere (as well as a co-edition in Germany and in US to come). Every week, I will put 1 or 2 images (with the story behind), until the publication of the book at the end of September 2012.

Pamir - Oubliés sur le Toit du Monde.
C’est l’histoire d’un livre qui a mis du temps à naitre ; plus de 10 ans de ma vie avec une obsession: les montagnes reculées de la Haute Asie (Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan). Nous venons de terminer la mise en page du livre – plus de 220 images pour 256 pages, publiés aux Editions de la Martinière (ainsi qu’une co-edition en Allemagne et aux US à venir). Chaque semaine, je mettrais une ou 2 images (avec leur histoire) qui apparaitront dans ce livre, jusqu’à sa sortie fin Septembre 2012.


5000m, Irshad pass: la ou tout a commencé: un pied en Afghanistan, un pied au Pakistan. Entre Pamir et Karakoram, j’y suis retourné 7 fois.
5000m, Irshad pass: this is where it all began: one foot in Afghanistan, one foot in Pakistan. Between Karakoram and Pamir, I went back 7 times.

Pamir was one of the famous Flying P-Liner sailing ships of the German shipping company F. Laeisz. She was the last commercial sailing ship to round Cape.

This web page is devoted to the kids and other individuals of the Pamirs, a area they know as POMIR – “the ceiling of the world”, although some declare that POMIR .
