Women of Tajikistan
The women of Tajikistan are hardworking, strong and beautiful. They have survived Soviet rule, civil war and are now often the sole caretakers as their husands and sons try to earn a living in Russia. We came across many of these women on our journey, this post shows just a few of them. If you have further interest in this subject, The New York Times has a great post on the situation of Tajik women. You can get it here.
Bloody brilliant photography! One can see from these images that the photographer has good empathy for the subjects and a careful eye for colors and details that help tell the story. Bravo on this website!
