About the Book
In 2011 I was given the opportunity to live in work in Mongolia. While for some this is an experience of a lifetime, others have an expectation that Mongolia is a barren country, frozen for most of the year with a hostile population. Right from the moment I arrived I've been pleasantly surprised.
This book is a photographic account of my life experiences while living in Mongolia.
