He went to the village of Ulupamir in the Erciş district of Van, where the Kyrgyz lived, and took photos reflecting their life and traditions.

I found a change to meet and take photos of Kırghız people whom. I wonder about for ages. The nice and hardworking Kırghız people who try to live in that hard life conditions produce many things at the workshops they build. Somethimes with difficulties and somethimes with joy Kırghız women almost weave their life stories with great care on the carpets. They weave the Nomad tents and sew the costumes of Kuruluş Osman and Diriliş Ertuğrul series. This village which is connected to its traditions strictly keeps central Anatolian culture alive. It’s also worth to see their mastery an riding horses. They play a traditional game called “Lamb catching” on their horses. The Atayurt Novad Tent which is placed near Van Lake hosts lots of tourists every year and it takes you to the history.

This story aims to tell you the hard living conditions and the Ulupamir Kırghız people who makes this life beaitiful in a countryside in the East wich is out of sight.
