Through the Eyes of Durdy Bayramov
Turkmen Village Life, 1960s-1980s

An exhibition at the Central Asia Program February 7 – May 26, 2017

With H.E. Meret B. Orazov, Ambassador of Turkmenistan to the United States

These photographs were selected from Durdy Bayramov’s personal archive. Although he took great pleasure in photography, Bayramov used it primarily as a tool in his artistic process and never expected that others would find the photographs fascinating in their own right. The images provide a rare and intimate glimpse into the customs and material culture of Turkmen villagers during this period, and at the same time reflect the profound human spirit shared by all communities.
