New: Mongolia Photo book PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 02 February 2006
Photographer Marco van Duyvendijk (1974, NL) spent a winter and a summer in Mongolia in order to capture daily life in this far-flung country. In this fascinating nation age-old nomadic traditions, Asian culture, Buddhist spirituality and the last traces of communism are mingling with the modern influences that have been making themselves felt since the quiet revolution of 1990. Van Duyvendijk’s book includes not only images of century-old rituals like falconry and the slaughtering of a horse in the steppes, but also of bored kids in an amusement arcade and hip youngsters sporting dreadlocks and piercings.

Mongolia Websites

During the Stalinist purges of the 1930's almost every monastery in Mongolia was destroyed. In 1979 an atlas was published in Ulaanbaatar by Mr. Rinchen with an overview of more than 900 religious sites that used to exist in Mongolia. However a lot the information listed seems to be not accurate. A research has been initiated to get a better idea of all the buddhist buildings that once stood in Mongolia.
