Framer Framed and NOOR Foundation presented a selection of work photographed by Elyor Nematov for the recent NOOR-Nikon Masterclass. The series of images opens a view onto the daily lives of women in the Central Asian nation of Kyrgyzstan. In doing so, complex issues of women’s social position and rights, as well as tradition, history and ethnic conflict begin to emerge. With this project Elyor seeks to convey the powerful strength and endurance of the women he meets and photographs.
