Action Asia - - CONTRIBUTORS - Text and pho­tog­ra­phy: Un­bro­ken tracks

Orig­i­nally from Switzer­land, Alessan­dra de­scribes her­self as a pho­tog­ra­pher of indige­nous peo­ple and tra­di­tional cul­tures. In her words: “I pre­fer re­mote and rugged places, moun­tain­ous ter­rain and desert. I love to find peo­ple who can man­age to sur­vive in th­ese places, to dis­cover and record their an­cient way of life be­fore they are changed by the mod­ern era.” In this is­sue, she fea­tures the peo­ple of the Al­tai in north­ern Xin­jiang, China who have handed down a tra­di­tion of mak­ing their own skis for many cen­turies.
