A Family Portrait
Arslanbek smiled with a certain bemusement thinking of the antiquated look he offered to my camera. Father of four kids, he asked me to portray his family as a record of a time he wished to see gone soon. He hopes that a road and consequent infrastructure would provide his remote place the necessary resources that would lift him and family from what continues to age them today.
The exaggerated tones of the pictures remember the exoticised past in which he felt stuck.
