Kyrgyzstan in May…

Coming to Kyrgyzstan in May, it seemed peaceful, and I thought everything would be fine after the revolution. So, I was traveling around to find some story ideas. Then, some minor clashes happened in the south in May. Took some pictures there. Again, it calmed down, so I was going to work on some projects. Then, the huge clashes broke in Osh and Jalalabad. And, everything went crazy. The perception on Kyrgyzstan changed internationally and for myself. I’m sort of starting from scratch again… These are the pictures taken after the revolution and before the June clashes.
