Mongolia, A Glimpse is actually a sneak-peak of a much larger project on the cultural amazingness of Mongolia and its connections to Native North Americans alive today.
Please allow me whisper in your mind for a minute I'll tell you a hint about whats going on here, worlds are colliding, the estranged waters of humanity are flowing towards each other, they are looking for one another. The images in this gallery are extremely special, they are of a very unique culture experiencing a time of magical change. The radical spiritual rebirth of shamanism is on overdrive. This rebirth is growing in contrast and around, deep turmoil. The story at play here is as old as humanities farthest depths and expands into all of our future generations.
Reaching into Asias and North Americas unique ancestry Mongolia looks with a brothers eye to reclaim its unique history in a modern time.
This gallery of images is my drawing board. These are my ideas, my reflective mind putting the pieces in one place so I may mentally download what can not be seen. I must tell you that these images also speak to me with direction to how they fit together; they declare that there is much more to come!
My favorite image for non obvious reasons comes from the cradle of modern shamanism, the Darhad Valley in Northern Mongolia, Hovsgol Provence. Magic is before your eyes working from within, you are indeed a participant. Thank you for looking.
