WOMEN IN KYRGYZSTAN
I make candid street photos, simplifying the chaotic mess of life with a sense of beauty, to bring out some mystery and order.
Observing people and their way of life while traveling is indeed an intriguing experience. In the case of Kyrgyzstan, the country boasts a well-organized public transportation system, with an extensive network of private minibuses and regular buses, bus stops often offer a fascinating cross-section of society, where individuals from different backgrounds and walks of life converge.
The dominant religion is Islam, which can be seen in the way women dress. The society is a mix of several ethnic groups 74.1% Kyrgyz,14.8% Uzbeks,5.0% Russian
My attention was focused on the observation of women, their lifestyle, their place in society.
As you focused on observing women, it is worth mentioning that Kyrgyz women play a vital role in the fabric of society. They are actively involved in various aspects of life, including education, politics, and the workforce. In recent years, there has been an increasing emphasis on empowering women and promoting gender equality in the country. This is reflected in the growing number of women occupying leadership positions and actively participating in social and economic development initiatives.
Kyrgyzstan offers a unique blend of modernity and tradition, where women have the opportunity to embrace their cultural heritage while also engaging with contemporary lifestyles and pursuits.
