Taking us face to face with a people forgotten by the world and modern life, French photographer Frédéric Lagrange's new cultural photography series takes us all the way to the barren eastern Afghanistan region.

Having been used as a historic crossroads for trade and commerce, this dangerous terrain known as the Wakhan Corridor is a mysterious place not frequented by many.

In Lagrange's hauntingly beautiful cultural photography series 'Passage to Wakhan,' the photographer documents a highly volatile region and its local Wakhi people. The warm Wakhi people generously accepted the photographer into their lives and helped him reach his goal of photographing a people so far removed from society and the world as we know it.

This original series shows viewers what life is like in the treacherous Wakhan Corridor and how its people survive the harsh conditions.
