Kicking off our 2017 exhibitions schedule will be photographer Jenny Hibbert’s amazing display of photos documenting the Mongolian Migration.
Of the trip itself, Jenny said: ‘I was thrilled to be accepted to go on this trip but as the days went on, I was thinking to myself, why am I doing this? Walking 19 miles each day, through the Altai mountains with the Nomadic Kazakh people & around a 1000 animals. With temperatures down as low as -26 during the day & -35 at night. It was a challenge, a trip of a lifetime & at 64 years of age one I am so glad I did’.
