Images from Kazakhstan is a project by independent documentary photographer based in Rome Gianfranco Gallucci. He works mainly getting involved in long term projects focused on landscape, social and cultural issues, exploring the relationship between us and the places we live. His work has been published on italian and foreign magazines such as Taz Berliner Zeitung, Brand Eins, Mitbestimmung, Territorio, l’Espresso, National Geographic Italia, Urbanautica, among others, and exhibited in several institutions including Triennale di Milano and MACRO Museum in Rome.
These photographs were taken in Kazakhstan on April 2014, upon an invite by a foundation to work on a documentary project in the South. I took pictures of people and places, without any intention to follow a specific story, just focusing on the visible contrast of modern Kazakhstan.
