Photographer John Feely came home from his 2014 and 2015 travels from Mongolia with a visual narrative perfectly encapsulating the wildness of its landscape and the local people’s relationship with it.

Fittingly titled The Outsiders, Feely attempts to understand this alienating and impenetrable culture in an ethereal collection of portraits. As a foreward to his photographic project, Feely writes: “It can be a transformative experience to simply not fill up the space with what we know and want, and instead embrace what is actually around us. These photographs are simply an extension of relationships formed from this place… No matter the size, a leap outside the comfort of what we know inspires a reduction in the distance between people.” See more of Feely’s work here.
