Photography by Alexander Khimushin
'Nine years ago I packed my backpack and have been globetrotting non-stop ever since, visited 84 countries. Gradually, I’ve got interested in visiting off the beaten path places, where ethnic minorities managed to preserve their culture and traditional way of living. I realized that it were them, the people I met, who made my travel experience so precious and unforgettable. Meeting indigenous people living in remote places, listening their stories and taking photos of them became the most inspiring part of my journey.'
