The trip of the British photographer Luke Duggleby to Dagestan

Luke Duggleby is a British photographer who has been traveling the world for almost five years taking pictures of people extracting salt. His publisher decided that the photographer should visit Russia.

After a lot of research, Luke found the information about the little-known Caucasian republic – Dagestan.

Duggleby contacted a wedding photographer Shamil Gadzhidadaev from Makhachkala, the capital city of the republic, who volunteered to help him.

After documenting the traditions of the salt making village, the photographer wanted to learn more about the culture of the region. He asked his new friends to show him their house. And they went to the mountains. The photos from the trip are published in his blog.

In addition, the following video was made: the aerial views of Dagestan villages accompanied by Duggleby’s story.

    I was so happy to find this blog Luke..Thank you so much for sharing, your video is beautiful. I have known about Dagestan for many years and have always had it in mind, that I would visit one day. This past year I have traveled in Georgia, Armenia and have just returned from Kyrgystan and Tajikistan. Tajikistan especially the Pamirs having captured my heart. I have traveled on and off for most of my life as an independent traveler keeping records photographically as well as writing journals of my adventures.. I am now planning my travels for next year and Dagestan is hopefully on the horizon. I would be so very grateful if you have any contacts that you would be happy to introduce me to. Kind Regards Aisha
