Photographer's Note

Headwear is very important in Uzbek society. Each ethnic group, Uzbek, Kyrgyz, Tajik, Kazakh, etc. have they own distinct style, while within these groups regional variations abound. Sadly baseball-style caps are becoming more ubiquitous especially amongst the young. Old hats, such as these, are being sold in the bazaars of Bukhara to tourists.
