Photographer's Note

A quelques heures de piste de la frontire chinoise au col de Torugart, s'tend la valle de l'Arpa
Pendant les 5-6 mois d't, quelques bergers se dissminent dans la solitude cette immense tendue, gardant leur troupeau ainsi que ceux confis par les villageois et les riches propritaires
Chevaux, vaches, moutons et parfois yaks paissent tranquillement avant d'tre rassembls au coucher du soleil dans un enclos, l'abri des loups et autres prdateurs

A few hours on dust roads away from the Chinese border at the Torugart pass, stretches the Arpa valley
During 5-6 summer months, a few shepherds scatter in the loneliness of this huge high plateau, watching their own herd as well as those entrusted to them by the villagers and rich owners
Horses, cows, sheep and yaks quietly graze before being rounded up at sunset into paddocks, at shelter from wolves and other predators
