In August and September 2014, my wife Eva and I challenged each other to another trip in a country we knew very little about : Kyrgyzstan. Over several weeks, from snowy mountain tops to orange steppes, either on foot or riding horses, we explored various aspects of this fascinating country.
We are now finishing a book about the experience, and it will be composed of one hundred pictures and the stories that happened around them. It will soon be available to purchase either as a digital copy or on print.

We didn’t buy any map of a specific area, we didn’t study a path that would take us to the most interesting places.

Of course, in reality, that also means that maybe we’d go completely the wrong way, spend a few weeks being lost and come back with nothing but memories of ghost towns and choal factories. Still, we thought it was worth the shot."
