Kids from the Mongolian steppes

Jun 15 2015

Through a few shots we are going to attempt to make you travel in the steppes, to the discovery of nomadic childhood. These children grow up and develop themselves into a farming environment, with goats and calves as playmates. They grow in the fresh air of the Mongolian steppes, ride horses, deal with animals, learn how to cook and cope with a rough environment. A journey in 40 photos.
