With Our Own Hands

With Our Own Hands tells, for the first time, the cultural and agricultural history of the Afghan and Tajik Pamirs, one of the world's least known and most isolated civilisations. Through the lens of local receipes, essays, stories and poetry, and accompanied by the work of three award-winning photographers, it describes Pamiri food and its origins, people's daily lives, their struggles and celebrations. In a context where poverty, conflicts and political upheaval have made it difficult for people to express and define their identity, food becomes a powerful tool for its survival.
