vanishing cultures - mustang

It's through the Vanishing Cultures Project (VCP) which I come across Taylor Wiedman who is a New York based photographer shooting Mustang for the group to raise funds and awareness. VCP is a nonprofit initiative which aims to assisting indigenous, traditional groups worldwide to preserve their culture by documenting their lifestyle through photography, research, and media, educating the public about these extinguishing values and cultures. The current project which spans till September 2012 is called Nomads No More, a theme about Mongolia. The below images shot by Taylor has been documented in the book Mustang: Lives and Landscapes of the Lost Tibetan Kingdom. Hundred percent of the proceeds of this book will go to the VCP, or order individual prints here!
