Peace Caravan Route

Photographer and artist, Marla Mossman, and the Peace Caravan Project are traveling from Jerusalem, Israel to X’ian, China by car, foot, horse, mule and camel to document places of historical and religious significance. In the quest to explore the Silk Road's heritage and its spirituality and the connection to Buddhism, Taoism, Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, and Islam, Mossman has already taken eight expeditions to photograph China, Egypt, India, Turkey, Afghanistan and the Middle Eastern countries of Syria, Jordan, Israel and most recently Uganda.

Mossman is optimistic that by sharing photographs and stories from her travels that viewers will find a new appreciation for the cultural of these nations and that a new way to peace will reveal itself.

Mossman’s photos capture the people along the journey in their daily lives and remind us that even though we have differences, we share similar loves, hopes and dreams. Her writings report the intimate moments she experiences with these people along the way. In her blog she shares graphic experiences, her soul searching moments, sometime sleepless nights, and also the many joys she finds as she visits these historical places.

When the photographs are viewed as a collection, on the website, in the photography books, and on display in the exhibitions and at the lectures; the Peace Caravan endeavors to inform and inspire others to achieve understanding, respect, and acceptance. This twenty first Century caravan traveling along the Silk Road, provides a network of individuals exchanging ideas, cultures, and traditions as they have for over 2,500 years
