Scenes of People, Kyrgyzstan - Shepherd
Living on the high-altitude plain (the Djailoo), the proud Krygyz people live not a life of poverty, but one of rich culture and hearty lifestyle. Every action is deeply rooted in a respect and care for the land that people in more modern cultures rarely appreciate. This ongoing body of work shows the people of Kyrgyzstan, inseparable from their agricultural lifestyle.
