From Valley to Highland

About Itai  Monnickendam

Interested in taking pictures almost as far as I can remember, it’s only in the last couple of years that it turned into a specialty of landscape photography. Since then I’ve been fortunate to meet my wife and together we travel and document amazing locations around the world such as Patagonia, China, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, the Balkans and the US. Our photography style is complementary and together we’re able to bring a unique perspective of the local culture and the amazing landscapes wherever we go. It’s a long journey ahead and I look forward to every single moment.

If you would like to experience this amazing world with us, be sure to check our page or contact us for the upcoming workshop announcements.

We didn’t know quite what to expect in this part of the world. It’s definitely not on any of the “best destinations” lists and most people haven’t even heard its’ name – Kyrgyzstan. Exploring these remote and unknown destinations are a main part of our photographic journey, and we absolutely love to find ourselves in the midst of a surprising and exciting adventure. Here we set out on a backpacking trip to explore the Kyrgyz part of the massive Tian-Shan mountain range that spreads from China through Kyrgyzstan (named different locally) to the edge of Tajikistan. Although we collected quite a bit of information before hand, we had no way of imagining what this place will bring, and thankfully it exceeded our expectations. What they say about mountain weather, that you can experience all 4 seasons in one day has proven to be very true.
