14 days in Mongolia — the sixth personal exhibition of the Russian traveler and photographer Viktor Pinchuk that was held in the exposition hall of the Russian Cultural Center in Simferopol from October 10 to 31, 2007.[1] More than half of the presented works are landscapes, the rest belong to genre photography.

Backstory[edit | edit source]

Material prepared during a creative trip to the country of the steppes, which took place in May of the same year. The route, not popular among foreign tourists, was chosen by the author of photo exhibition for several reasons; one of them is to master a new genre: the deserted spaces of an Asian country, overgrown with taiga vegetation — an eldorado for shooting landscapes.

Khatgal is located on the coast of Lake Khövsgöl. At that time, there was no electricity in the village, and a few guests — admirers of ecological tourism, were settled in yurts heated with a stove. [2]

In addition, the route list included: Kharkhorin, where the capital of Mongol Empire, founded by Genghis Khan, was located; Arvaikheer, Bayankhongor and Zuunmod, near which is the Manjusri Monastery.[2]
