Living in the Shadow of Ani. Eastern Turkey. - Genevieve Hathaway

Herder. Plains around Ani, Eastern Turkey.

A herder grazes his cattle on the plains around the ancient ruins of Ani. The plains are at high altitudes, many ranging between 6,000-8,000 feet above sea level. Many of these herders and farmers have lived and worked in the land disputed between Armenia and Turkey. Even amongst the guard towerx and ancient ruins, their daily life continues much the same.
