Description - Daghestan by Robert Chenciner
Situated in the rugged mountain peaks and deep valleys of north eastern Caucasus, Daghestan is home to more than 30 distinct peoples. Each of these peoples has their own language yet they share a surprisingly homogeneous culture that has both withstood and absorbed centuries of external influences. Robert Chenciner has travelled extensively throughout the region, and here he gives a fascinating account of the swiftly vanishing traditional ways of life in the villages of this inaccessible mountain area and how the Daghestanis of today are adapting to this change. With more than 90 black and white photographs, this is a unique chronicle of a unique culture as seen through one man's eyes.
