Kazakhstan is dotted with 48,000 lakes, many small like this mirror-surfaced one at Ush-Konyr near Fabrichny

 Lake Ush-Konyr is a one of my favorite places with no  power lines in sight, silent and serene.  Kazakhs consider  lakes  the eyes of the sky.
Kazakhstan is a place of irony.  Some of the worst man-made disasters; Aral Sea and Polygon have occurred in Kazakhstan.  Some of the most beautiful and pristine places on earth are to be found in Kazakhstan.

Standard

On December 16, 1991, Kazakhstan emerged from a long and challenging period under Soviet rule.  Over the past 20 years the country has blossomed in what can be described as the Kazakh Renaissance, a demonstration of the enduring spirit of the Kazakh culture.  I celebrate this anniversary with a selection of images from the book, The Soul of Kazakhstan.  The collection  showcases Kazakhstan’s people, history, culture and land.  They will be posted on my WordPress blog over the coming days leading up to the anniversary.

A permanent library of images is available for purchase as prints or licensing  at  http://eastep.photoshelter.com/gallery/Kazakhstan/G0000xg4sBqG4LWQ/
