In one month, I will be in Kyrgyzstan for the third biennial World Nomad Games. This is a Olympics-style competition of traditional Central Asian sports that brings together participants from around 80 countries.

My work in Kyrgyzstan will take two forms:

- Livetweeting with images and videos of the events I attend during the week-long tournament. (Twitter: @filmspiritual)

- Shooting an analog format, street photo/documentary style project during the events and then around the country in the remaining time I am there.

Most English-language media has covered this event as a tourism promotion or as a farce. I will shoot it with a respectful and sensitive lens. The voice of my analog work is unique and you will likely not see a similar approach elsewhere.

If you are interested seeing this, I hope you will follow me starting by September 1st. If you want to share my social media updates, you are welcome to do so. If you would like to license and utilize the work produce in digital, video, or print media, please be in touch for arrangements. I would love to arrange a distribution outlet, large or small, to carry this.

Samples of my previous work are available on my Visura site accessed through my profile.
