Explore Uzbekistan with PWA Photographer Laurie Cohen
The former Soviet republic of Uzbekistan is considered by many as Central Asia’s hidden gem. With ancient sites linked to the Silk Route – the trade routes between the Mediterranean and China, the remnants of its past can be found in the exceptional architectural styles and proud traditions that remain to this day. It has been the cradle of culture for over two thousand years and is truly one of the world’s rising stars for travel photographers. From walking in the footsteps of Genghis Khan and Alexander the Great to remnants of its Soviet past, visiting modern-day Uzbekistan is a journey back in time.
Being a relatively unknown country for tourism, one may wonder how safe it is to travel in Uzbekistan. The 2018 Global Law and Order Report listed Uzbekistan as the 5th safest country in the world, which makes it safer to visit than Switzerland or Canada.
Likewise, the portrait and street photographer will quickly discover that photographing its people is a real joy. Such is the warmth and hospitality of the local population, which you will experience on our 11-day Uzbekistan Photo Tour & Cultural Adventure. Visiting Uzbekistan with your camera will give you the opportunity to capture this exotic and fascinating land, from its magnificent architecture, beautifully rugged landscapes, rich culture, and warm hospitality.
You will be guided to the most photogenic sites specifically selected for maximizing your time available in this marvelous country. The tour is designed for beginners, enthusiasts, and advanced amateurs, with an emphasis on creative travel photography techniques.
These are only some of the many wonderful highlights you can expect on this adventure. To learn more, check out the Uzbekistan page. Small group photo tours will run every spring and fall. You can also book this as a private for yourself, or with friends and family.
