Faces of Kyrgyzstan

Time I think for another ‘Faces of’. I was initially going to do a ‘Faces of Central Asia’, combining Kyrgyzstan with Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, but when reviewing my photos from the region, I realised that I had more than enough photos of people from Kyrgyzstan alone.

At Altyn Arashan, in the mountains in the region near Karakol, I stayed at a hut with a family.. No electricity there, but the family were very friendly and happy for me to take photos.

In Bishkek the father of this family tapped me on the shoulder and asked if I would take their photo. Truly!

Actually I just wanted a shot of the hat, but the family were happy to pose in front of the ‘Broken Heart’, near Karakol.
