Some Photos from Buzkashi/Kupkari
As Georgians have not been nomads and Georgia itself is pretty small and does not have wide and open spaces like the Central asian countries there is no traditional sport like my favorite Kupkari or Buzkashi. Georgians instead have the local tradition of horse races over quite long distances of 10 to 15 and more km in difficult mountainous conditions. I will photograph Georgian horse races in the summer in Tusheti and Khevsureti.
A made some photos of Kupkari/Buzkashi (scroll down) instead in Uzbekistan and wrote an Essay about it in German wich can be read here: http://www.heinerbuhr.de/buzkashi.htm
