Tekes County (2/9)
I came to Tekesi for the 6th International Photography Festival, where I was featured alongside other talented photographers such as @ricdb @kungfuimaging @people_of_beijing @sarsenphoto, etc.
These shots were taken at the opening ceremony and they should be able to give you a good idea of what the locals of Tekesi look like and especially how diverse they are in terms of ethnicity and culture: Kazakh, Uighurs, Mongols, Hui and many more.
As a Caucasian foreigner, I was about as exotic to them as they were to me and that last to countless group-selfie requests. A lot of fun. (For more context, see previous posts.)
