Jeroen Toirkens’ spectacular photo-book is the accomplishment of twelve years photographing nomadic people across the world.
I find it an extraordinary way of life; I never realised there were so many nomads. What really fascinates me is how people who lived thousands of miles apart still have the same customs. That is because they have the same origins. Their hearts lie in Central Asia, in places like Kyrgyzstan, Altai and Mongolia, from where people moved in a northern direction to Siberia and Lapland and to the East, via the Bering Strait to North America, Canada and Greenland.
