Photo and caption by James Robertson

A young Afghani, in the province of Bamyan, takes to the slopes on homemade skis. They are made from wood and metal and fasten to his feet with string and chain. He has been inspired by seeing western tourists who are travelling to the area in ever increasing numbers to take to the remote slopes of the Hindu Kush.

Location: Bamiyan
