CROSSING THE STEPPES
Elsewhere is her engine, and Others her fuel. Since she was a child, photographer, writer, traveler, member of the French Explorers’ Society and film producer, Priscilla Telmon, has been walking, running and riding in her dreams, as well as confirming that they are just as beautiful at the other end of the planet.
« Crossing the Steppes », 2001 and « Diaries of the Steppes: on horseback across Central Asia », 2002. A six-month cavalcade, certainly no easy ride, over nearly 3,000 kilometers, in tribute to all the missionaries and explorers who have crossed the country. Six months in the tracks of the steppe “scraper people” who opened up the unknown horizons of old Turkestan.
