Alda, Rus & Burgut (2006)

Matthieu Paley

Limited edition of 18
Archival pigment print
80 x 60 cm
Bayan Ölgii Province

Alda, her husband Rus Bosara, and their 3-year-old golden ealge in their decorated kazakh yurt. Bayan Ölgii Province is in the very west on Mongolia and is predominantly populated by kazakhs. Even in the most remote areas, many yurts today have electricity derived from solar power.

Matthieu Paley

Matthieu Paley was born in France, spent three years studying photography in New York and has led a peripatetic life for much of the past twelve years in the highest and remotest regions of Asia. He is regarded as possibly the finest young explorer-photographer working today in Asia, and since 2012 has worked on several major National Geographic assignments


Paley’s photographs are awe-inspiring. His work is not easily acquired and few people ever visit the regions which he has made his second home. Frequently, he visits these beautiful but inhospitable regions in the depths of winter when temperatures drop to -30°c. For Paley this provides the best light and working conditions to shoot his ethereal and awe inspiring photographs.
