The pictures and crafts from London's 'Silk Road'

14 June 2021

Over the weekend, Londoners were able to get a glimpse into the orient as artisan vendors were selling goods from countries along the historic Silk Road trading route. Supported by the Aga Khan Foundation, the bazaar was staged to compliment the similarly themed open-air photography exhibition currently featured in nearby Granary Square in London’s Kings Cross. Silk Road: A Living History documents photographer Christopher Wilton-Steer’s 40,000 kilometre journey along the world’s oldest trade route. Comprised of over 160 photographs, the exhibition invites viewers to take a journey from London to Beijing. The bazaar is a pilot project but both organisers and vendors say there is scope for it to happen more regularly.
