Mongolian culture, through centuries on centuries of evolution, developed a unique nomadic form of subsistence-based upon the steppe, the grassland plain amongst the mountains, lakes, and dunes. Their homeland is essentially a continuous path, different in nature from paths designed to convey travelers to a destination.

Comprised of eight sequences of photographs taken as I walked or drove along a path, according to the route of nomadic families living in Zavkhan, a province in northwestern Mongolia, the structure of this book is based on an attempt to imagine the photograph as an analog of an instance of perception. The attempt is to try to understand how these instances of perception might be compiled into an abstract notion of place; the sense of geography that allows us to feel oriented.
