Alessan­dra Meni­conzi

Action Asia - - CONTRIBUTORS -

Orig­i­nally from Switzer­land, Alessan­dra is a widely pub­lished and award-win­ning pho­tog­ra­pher. She says: “My work cen­tres on the an­cient her­itage, cus­toms, spir­i­tu­al­ity and daily life of in­dige­nous peo­ple who are strongly con­nected to na­ture and whose tra­di­tional cul­tures are at risk of van­ish­ing.” In this is­sue we see the pho­tog­ra­phy that re­sulted from an over­land win­ter trip through Mon­go­lia, her first to the coun­try, where she doc­u­mented the strug­gles of such peo­ple. “I am mo­ti­vated by the in­ter­play be­tween wild places and an­cient cul­tures, as well as a fas­ci­na­tion with, and re­spect for, na­tive peo­ple who sub­sist in iso­lated re­gions of the world,” she says.
