About ‘Open Land: Kyrgyzstan’:
Equipped with only an analog camera I was traveling 9 days through Kyrgyzstan, which ranks the 10th place in the worlds poorest countries. This mountainous country with 6 million inhabitants has experienced considerable political and social instability since its independence from the USSR in 1991. Nevertheless their struggles, the people living there welcomed me with their open heart and shared some great moments with me.
