Description
Here the ethnographic documentary team that produced Mustang: Lives and Landscapes of the Lost Tibetan Kingdom present a photographic tour of one of the world's last truly nomadic cultures. Pastoral herders have ranged freely on the Mongolian steppe for millennia, moving with their livestock according to the seasons, living in traditional felt-covered gers and subsisting on the meat and milk of their animals. Today, however, desertification and climate change are threatening pastures and herds, while some of the world's largest reserves in coal, copper, and gold are positioning Mongolia to become one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Through large and vivid color photos and a text with interviews, perspectives, and anecdotes from herders, Taylor Weidman and Nina Wegner document the ancient traditions of Mongolian nomads and the struggles they face in adapting to the modern world.
