Photographer Carolyn Drake

A selection of photos from “Two Rivers” by photographer Carolyn Drake. The series follows the Amu Darya and Syr Darya rivers from their ends points to the source. The distance spans the western edge of China across Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan; a total of 2,500km.

The image above is a crater of fire in Turkmenistan that’s been burning since 1971. Geologists found a cavern of natural gas and tried to burn it off to prevent poisoning anyone. They assumed it would take a few days. Four decades later the flame is still burning, and locals refer to this pit as the Door to Hell.

More images from “Two Rivers” below.
