Images taken during my participation in the U.S./Russia Peer to Peer Project, a government funded exchange program in Southern Russia that took us to the regions of Stavropol and the Republic of Karachay-Cherkessia.
Group exercises inside a soviet-era gym, which now serves as a community center in the city of Stavropol. All ages are encouraged to participate, and that day the oldest woman was recognized for fighting in the Russian resistance during World War II.
Wild horses grazing in the Caucasus Mountains, near the border of Georgia and Russia.
Inside a family run store in the Caucasus Mountains. Family is extremely important in Karachay culture, which has developed in relative isolation for hundreds of years.
