The people of the 'Dukha' is a mongolian tribe among the cultures people thought to disappear centuries ago.

With globalization, modernization and a growing world population, we tend to think that these tribes no longer exist. But this nomadic tribe still live in the same area for centuries. This has led to an amazing relationship with the animals that live around them - a relationship hard to believe unless you see it with your own eyes.

Fortunately a photographer documented the tribe, and those spectacular pictures show the special relationship they have with animals. Hamid Sardar-Afhami visited the lost tribe and documented something amazing, spectacular and very, very rare.
