Damollan, 60-year-old Uyghur blacksmith sips his tea during a short break from his 10-hour work day. Katman Bazaar is a small block located in the Old city of Kashgar in the Xinjiang province of China. The Uyghur blacksmiths have worked in these quarters for hundreds of years. Like most parts of the ancient Kashgar, Katman Bazaar is now under constant danger of being demolished for the sake of urban development supported by the Chinese government.
