How do we represent a city which has already disappeared? Starting in 2009 the Chinese government demolished the Old City of Kashgar — the heartland of the Uyghur Muslim minority — and began to erect a modern city in its place. At the beginning of the destruction, our team and took over 600 photographs of the old city, documenting the site before it was razed. We are currently exploring how to make visible the Old City again through conversations with partner archives, collecting oral histories, as well as returning to document what has risen in its place. This project is ongoing.
