Open.kz is Lifelong Project
NUR-SULTAN – Kazakh photographer Valery Ayapov launched a nationwide wildlife documentary series project titled Open.kz dedicated to the 30th anniversary of Kazakhstan’s independence.
“Unlike trophy hunting in Kazakhstan, taking a photo, or even more so, a video plot with animals is much more difficult here. A trophy hunter can hunt an animal from a distance of 300 meters or more. And I need to show an animal up close – from 10-30 meters, take a series of photos and shoot a plot for a video containing finished editing phrases. Therefore, the photographer has to be extremely careful".
