Hinterlands: The Mongolian Steppe

Sweeping expanses of grasses and open skies compose the Mongolian Steppe. Despite harsh winters with whipping winds and warm, dusty summers, the area shelters an array of wildlife. Herds of wild gazelles and horses, called Takhi, mingle with grazing domestic ungulates of nomadic people. The predators of the land, vultures, foxes and wolves, scavenge carcasses of creatures unable to endure the harsh conditions. Hinterlands endeavors to illustrate the magnificence of this expansive, yet fragile terrain through repeating pattern and print of the animals who inhabit it.
