The Ismaili Centre, Toronto – Exhibition Hall
May 9 to July 30, 2015
Traveling in Kyrgyzstan, photographer Margaret Morton became captivated by the otherworldly grandeur of Kyrgyz cemeteries – the ornate domes and minarets, tightly clustered behind stone walls, seemed at odds with the desolate and majestic mountains of Kyrgyzstan. Morton’s extraordinary photographic record of these buildings highlights the unique architectural expression and complex nature of Kyrgyz religious and cultural identities, and bears witness to the architectural and cultural legacies of Central Asia.
The exhibition is presented in partnership with the University of Central Asia with support from the Aga Khan Museum.
