Many considered the Mongol Empire to be the greatest land empire in history. Under the rule of Genghis Khan, the Mongol Empire spread and stretched, covering the area we know today as Iran and also Russia.
Kim Hang’s photographic documentation of Asia started in 2005 during a 10 months journey through Asia. His explorations continue thereafter, progressing from the initial focus on the Silk Road, to the wider coverage of Asia East To West. Realising that the historical Mongol Empire encompassed a large area of the Asian continent, Russia and Eastern Europe, he set out for a 13 months journey in September 2013, supported by Olympus Corporation for his equipment and travel costs. Inspired by the historical travellers like Marco Polo and Ubn Batutta, he aspire to inspire likewise, and especially youths, to develop interest in Asian-focused humanities.
