Photographer's Note

XI'AN is the capital of Shaanxi province. Looking at the map of China, you will find the city located more or less in the middle of the country. The city feels like a crossroads of civilisations, with lots of ancient Chinese culture and a lively muslim quarter too.


THIS PICTURE was shot in Xian's muslim district. In its main street there usually are plenty of food stalls. This baker sells flat breads, as you'd find in the far western regions of China (and beyond), mainly in Xinjiang. The Han Chinese don't really have a tradition for bread. For Han and tourists alike the far west begins here in Xi'an.

Tasty stuff!
