Photographer's Note

History frozen in time,

Khiva is one of the most well preserved walled medieval cities in Central Asia - a Unesco world heritage site used to be a centre of Islamic learning and spirituality. It's small and compact and due to its remote location makes it feel more authentic and has an incredible charm to it almost untouched by the Commie Hammer & Sickle influence. The historical city is a gem and walking in is like traveling in time with historic monuments everywhere. Taken on a diffused & cold late afternoon with the commanding look of Islam Khodja Minaret


If I would imagine the 1001 nights fairy tales, I would imagine it all happened here.......
