Very interesting and a great way to learn about the work of AKDN - fantastic way to create awareness of the wonderful work of the AKDN

Beautiful photographs and informative captions. Also great use of public space.

Really enjoyed this... Obviously a personal experience, but fabulous pictures that gave a real insight to the random experiences one had when travelling on a long distance route by surface transport.

I especially liked the border crossings marked out on the route...and that one could 'travel' the silk road in either direction - from China like we did, following the original inspiration from China or from London where we are now.

We came down by train especially to see this, and coincided it with the street bazaar which we have yet to visit...

Thank you for this well thought out and fascinating free ( and accessible) exhibition.

Thank you for a wonderful meander along the Silk Road. I especially enjoyed the way it revealed links between the cultures along the route, bringing together East and West. Fascinating and heartening.

Sherry, London

Absolutely fabulous- loved it. And learned a lot. It was just like going on holiday 😁

Hasan Moman, London

Why did you put seating by the pics? It caused people to block the images and accompanying text.


Neil Catteau, UK

Fantastic photos and text.

One of the best things I have ever seen.

I have a question - Would you be able to put the contents of the exhibition (in its entirety) on your website or as a PDF ?


Bridie Bear, Lincoln England

Extremely interesting and informative exhibition


How stunning! What a fantastic project. It makes great use of the space and how wonderful that it is in a public space and so accessible to everyone. Congratulations and thank you

Waste of time.

Whats the point in putting the photos and text on benches that people sit on?

Rossitza Atanassova, London

The exhibition was a real treat, these are amazing powerful images with very informative captions illustrating history and modern life along the Silk Road. Made me want to travel to these places and learn more about some cultures. A map of the Silk Road would have been helpful. I will visit the Aga Khan Foundation website for more information about their work. It was great to see Bulgaria where I was born included in the exhibition. Thank you for a wonderful journey.

I had a guided tour hosted by the photographer.
The photographs were absolutely brilliant.
It must have been a labour of love to gather photographs of so many different places.
I am keen to learn more about The Silk Road.
