Check out this Facebook page, it has a lot of pictures of the northern areas of Pakistan, sorry digital and mostly PS (my opinion, I might be wrong so no disrespect to the photographer) but you will get an idea.

Amazing country, but we are not doing justice. There is a lot to photograph, and in my opinion it has not been photographed the way it should have been. I hope one day I will be able to do justice. There are so many cultures, areas that it would be wonderful to explore with a b&w medium.

I want to first completely learn, have a proper view camera, and then hit the road. Since it will be a single trip, I have to be fully equipped and ready.

Hope I did not bore you guys, my intention is not to boast but to make you guys interested in coming down and taking this journey with me some day...maybe when it is safer

Cheers
Raffay.
