My name is Reyhana Turdieva. I'm a documentary photographer from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Photography allows me to combine sociological background and love of visual expression. In the personal projects I mostly focus on stories of underrepresented communities and minority groups.
I have worked with Mercy Corps, UN Woman non-governmental organizations. My works were published by Regnum, Bird In Flight,
London School of Economics and Political Science blog.
