Photo Essay: The Lost Nomad

Let’s say you were born on the steppes of Mongolia. No, not in the city. In a real nomadic family in the countryside. And let’s also assume that you went on to live somewhere else, be it in the cities or even abroad.

My question is: Do you miss being on the go?

Do you miss being out in the open? What’s the point of not staying in one place, but wandering the vast Earth? Why do we nomads always yearn for travel, and what if we get lost? Having wanderlust transcends ethnicity – there are nomads at heart in almost every culture, those who hear the call of the wind in them. I think of myself as a lost nomad, because the world is this way, and I am that way.

What you see below are pieces of my way of looking at the world. For more details, check out my website here: www.lostnomad.net
