The steppes of Central Asia can at first sight be summed up in three words: dry, bare and drab. Looking through the eye of photographer and documentary-maker Marjoleine Boonstra you will something else: a world which literally offers light and colour, and also to the core fizzes with hope and beauty. In her accompanying tales Ce´line Linssen depicts the characters that live in aridness and dream of green.
