Visualtraveling_Turkmenistan

October 9th, 2014

Another gem from Patrik Wallner and his Visualtravelling series, this time he presents another amazing reportage about Turkmenistan. Congrats Patrick, great job. “When glancing down at the blaze at the ‘Gateway to Hell’, one has a hard time believing that this gas crater fuming natural gas is still burning, considering it was set to flames by accident over four decades ago. Turkmenistan has been a ‘stan a bit more complicated to set foot into because of its political obscurity and sensitivity towards filming and photography. Never the less, after overcoming a couple denials, I was able to enter the post Türkmenbaşy and present day Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedows’ build on white marble state.”
