Ayin: Inner Mongolian Tribe

Photo © Ayin-All Rights Reserved

Ayin is a Mongolian self-taught freelance photographer, and is a member of the Photographer Association in China, and was awarded the honor of being one of "The Ten Best Photographers in Inner Mongolia", along with numerous photographic awards in China. In 2007, he was one of the four award recipients of the 4th Annual All Roads Film Festival Photography by the National Geographic.

His decision to document the disappearing Mongolian heritage led to an odyssey to record the live stories of the last Mongolian tribe in Inner Mongolia.

This is ethno-photography at its best.
