Mihály Benkő have been researching the Shamanic tradition and the burial customs among the Kazakhs of the Mongolian Altai for several years. During his travels into the Mongolian Altai and during his field-work over there he photographs what he sees around himself. His aim is to document the nomadic life which is still intact in Central Asia even in our days. Mihály Benkő documents the pastoral life, the grazing, shepherding and milking of the animals, the mounted nomadic life, the winter- and summer quarters, the everyday life of theinhabitants of the yurts, the folk art, the shamanic ceremonies and burial customs, the landscape and the archaeological and historical relics of the Mongolian Altai on his photos. His beautiful and in several cases unique photos published in our photo album first time illustrate a piece of our Past: that mounted Nomadic life which had been once spread int he Eastern part of Eurasia for several centuries, and which had also been lived by the Ancient Hungarians having arrived into the Carpathian Basin from Eastern direction at the end of the IX Century A.
