Each year during summer, Mongolia celebrates the Naadam. This week-long festivity celebrates the country’s independence from China. While huge territories are given away to the highest bidder and while the successive governments destroy the nomad culture little by little, when comes the Naadam...

 

Hidden Wounds (Drones' Victims) is one of the last chapters of my long term project in Pakistan started in early 2008. This portrait series has started in June 2011. It is about people, mostly from North Waziristan, who got involved, either actively or passively in a drone strike event. Some...
