The Kazakh, a semi-nomadic ethnic group in Western Mongolia,
have a deep bound with their animals. They understand that these
animals are their ways to survive. Here a little girl among the

France Leclerc, born in Quebec, Canada, is an independent photographer who currently lives in Chicago. Her early career was in academia, but she decided to make a change to pursue her true passion for photography. The most prominent themes of her work are culture (especially disappearing ones), gender, and social inequality. She likes to describe her work as “life photography”, though her approach is a mix between documentary and street photography.
