I am very excited to finally share my longform photoessay in Uzbekistan. This work took a long time to create, not just from the time since April that it took to shoot, edit, and sequence, but also in the time it took to wholly conceptualize it. Ten years since I started thinking about traveling and shooting a project here, and that time that it was inside me factors in to the final project. Time spent dreaming about a place. And then at last be there, and have the memories start to fill the emotional space where the dreams resided.
This is Uzbekistan in eight dreams. Some bold and fully formed, some vague and difficult to recall.
