The Jungar Alatau, a range of the Tien Shen Mountains between China and Kazakhstan. In the barely inhabited steppes of Asia, China is building an international shipping hub and free trade zone that will connect its coastal factories with the global economy. The area, near the Eurasian Pole of Inaccessibility, lies 1,550 miles from any sea or ocean on the planet and is home to some of the last surviving pastoral nomads in Central Asia.

Kazakhs in the mountains above Khorgos preparing to play their national sport, the kokpar. In the barely inhabited steppes of Asia, China is building an international shipping hub and free trade zone that will connect its coastal factories with the global economy. The area, near the Eurasian Pole of Inaccessibility, lies 1,550 miles from any sea or ocean on the planet and is home to some of the last surviving pastoral nomads in Central Asia. Can China turn the middle of nowhere into the center of the world economy? Will this project benefit the people living in its path, or will it upend their way of life and leave them with little in return? This story is not just about a Kazakh remote village but about our shared future: a world fully enclosed by the logic of globalization, where goods and capital move freely and humans are more surveilled and administered than ever before.

Almaty station. A five-car sleeper leaves Almaty, Kazakhstan’s largest city, at 11 p.m. every other night bound for Altynkol, the old station at the eastern end of the line. The trip takes just over six hours. The route’s purpose is to encourage tourists to visit the free-trade zone at the border with China.

The night train that runs between Almaty, Kazakhstan, and the eastern terminus, Altynkol. The route’s purpose is to increase tourism and business developments at the border where a central hub is growing around a village called Khorgos. Khorgos has spent most of its existence on the obscure periphery of international affairs, and its official population is just 908. But it has become an integral part of the initiative known informally as the new Silk Road, a China-led effort to build a vast cephalopodic network of highways, railroads and overseas shipping routes, supported by hundreds of new plants, pipelines and company towns in dozens of countries.

A portrait of Nunur, a farmer and taxi driver whose family fled from China’s Xinjiang region into Kazakhstan when he was a child. He worked as a tractor mechanic on a Soviet collective farm until the fall of the Soviet Union. He is one of the many Kazakhs living in the remote border villages near the Pole of Inaccessibility, where traditional farming and pastoralism is giving way to a new economy based in international trade and commerce.

The Khorgos dry port. Khorgos Gateway is the largest logistics hub in Central Asia. Its investors hope it will soon be the largest dry port in the world. The Belt and Road Initiative, or B.R.I., as the project is more formally known, will link China’s coastal factories and rising consumer class with Central, Southeast and South Asia; with the Gulf States and the Middle East; with Africa; and with Russia and all of Europe, all by way of a lattice of land and sea routes whose collective ambition boggles the mind.

Tourist attractions at the International Center for Border Cooperation (ICBC), a free-trade zone straddling the Chinese-Kazakh border. The ICBC it's China's first unique economic zone "within the country, but out of the jurisdiction of its customs". Each day, according to the ICBC, around four thousand visitors from Kazakhstan and ten thousand from China enter a free-trade zone in Khorgos, hoping to buy duty-free goods. In the barely inhabited steppes of Central Asia, China is establishing the next foothold in its trillion-dollar campaign to transform global infrastructure. “The Trillion-Dollar Nowhere”, my latest cover story for The New York Times Magazine is out this week, in print and on line - link in bio. @nytmagazine@nytimes#Kazakhstan#documentaryphotography#photojournalism

“The Trillion-Dollar Nowhere”, my latest cover story for The New York Times Magazine is out this week, in print and online - link in bio. Can China turn the middle of nowhere into the center of the world economy? In the barely inhabited steppes of Central Asia, it is establishing the next foothold in its trillion-dollar campaign to transform global infrastructure. In this picture, we are in Kazakhstan near the city of Nurkent, where aligned containers are transformed into worker housing. Kaidush, a 69-year-old security guard, keeps watching. @nytmagazine@instituteartist#Kazakhstan#documentaryphotography#photojournalism

Manuel, 14 years old, lives with his family in a small house in the village of Los Guatuzos, Nicaragua. Manuel attended the community school and like many other young people here he hopes to continue his studies across the border, in Costa Rica. In this remote and beautiful land, live just a few hundreds of people, a community consisting mainly of young families. Marginalized in the suburbs of the big cities, families of farmers settle in these forgotten place, looking for an alternative to life and for land to cultivate, a slow exodus of settlers driven by hunger and by the hope of a better future. A picture the series “Looking for Paradise”. Are we still going to be able to live in nature and to find a balance with the environment that surrounds us or is this possibility lost forever? #CentralAmerica#Nicaragua#documentaryphotography#photojournalism#SonyImagingAmbassador#SonyAlpha
