Photographer's Note

This young lad is growing up in the grasslands around Lake Song Kul. It is a herder's lifestyle where his father tends horses and cattle on the summer pastures.

This photograph was taken three days before Kyrgyzstan celebrated their tenth anniversary of independence. This boy is part of the new generation who never knew Soviet occupation.

The boy's family lives in a traditional yurt "tent". To see their home please take a look at one of my favourite pictures: Two Yurts.
