What is a supermarket like in Mongolia? It is no different to any other supermarket and more than likely you will see many familiar brand names as well as some not […]

Mongolia | A Journey to Central Asia | Ulaanbaatar

Arriving in Ulaanbaatar I remember the first time that I arrived in Ulaanbaatar’s Chinggis Khaan International Airport. The Aeroflot flight from Moscow to UB was getting near to the airport and I remember looking out of my window onto the landscape below. It wasn’t what I had imagined.

Mongolia – Landscapes and People

The 7th to 29th September 2018 saw me in Mongolia. I was invited there to photograph the landscapes and people of this beautiful and vast country. Rewind back to January 2018 and I meet a lady named Jess. Speaking to and showing Jess my work she looked at me said “how would you like to go to Mongolia?” Yes, was the short answer and so a period of watching the pennies to buy my airline ticket ensued. Between January and […]
