Kazakhstan: Peeking Behind the Shiny Façade

28 Mar

Here’s a link to an interesting NYT blog featuring the work of Japanese photographer Ikuru Kuwajima.  He’s been living in Kazakhstan since late 2010  and has been working on some great projects.

One captures the contrasts between indoor and outdoor life in Astana, Kazakhstan’s chilly capital, and another focuses on the desolation of the Saryshagan Soviet-era anti-ballistic missile testing site on the west bank of Lake Balkhash.
