Photographer's Note

The Uzbek, one of the most ancient peoples of Central Asia is more diversed than one can imagine. Modern Uzbeks hail not only from the Turkic-Mongol who first claimed the name, but also from other Turkic and
Persian peoples living inside the country's borders. The former Commie Soviets, in an effort to "divide and rule" the Turkic people into more easily governable subdivisions, labeled them as Turks, Tajiks, Sarts,
Karakalpak, Khojas and others as Uzbek, thus doubling the size of the ethnicity. This country fuses so many different influences though the official language Uzbek is a Turkic language everyone also speaks Russian.

That 'ushanka' bear fur hat makes him look almost like a former colonial master or KBG agent perhaps,, he.. he..

In general I found the street people so hospitable, love their photos taken, so cheerful, not camera shy, in fact the friendly faces can be found almost everywhere. Shooting them needs a bit of scouting around, pick & choose, patience and common sense are the keys.

That's the pure joy of street photography that I truly enjoy......
