johnstanmeyer Once there was water in abundance in moynak, uzbekistan, then during the soviet era water was diverted from the aral for irrigation. more than 40 years later, my dear friend and social media assistant on this overland car journey of the @outofedenwalk for @natgeo, @yulia_grigoryants walks over snow sprinkled upon the former seabed of the aral sea, amongst the ghost ships that line the former shoreline. • be sure to follow yulia here on instagram @yulia_grigoryants for vignettes of our travels by car through uzbekistan and to appreciate the photography she creates across the world. • #onassignment @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #uzbekistan #moynak #aral #aralsea #ghostships #boats #snow

johnstanmeyer Enthralled how storytelling is evolving... just published a short essay from the aral sea on @natgeo 's instagram stories feed. the philosophical process of creating such layered narratives is fascinating, beginning with storyboarding in spontaneous movement in field, doing so in vertical video and photo format, curating the final video thereafter due to no signal in such remote areas of uzbekistan, editing video to 10 seconds, sequencing both stills and video, editing metadata then publishing, all from an iphone. gracious appreciation to @yulia_grigoryants who is traveling with me on this leg of the @outofedenwalk for her insightful help with editing ~ be sure to follow yulia here on ig. also to aziz khalmuradoff for video support. this @natgeo instagram story will only exist for 24 hours...the ephemeral beauty of this lateral form of sharing stories. @natgeocreative @natgeotravel @thephotosociety #uzbekistan #instagramstories #enthralled #onfire #possibilities #storytelling #journalismtoday

johnstanmeyer College to nurse, marriage to tending needs in the two bedroom home of her in-laws, included two unexpected arrivers. even so, 22 year-old arynur could still muster a quiet smile, cooking soup in the beauty of the sparkling curtained kitchen. #onassignment @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #uzbekistan #karakalpakstan #kitchen #sparkles #life

Listening to the silence of wind, its beauty always changing direction, our perception of who we are, where we are going, till only a core truth remains ~ death. our inability to not hear this voice, reminding us of all we are asked to do in this brief, beautiful dance of our existence, is choicelessness. shakhi-zinda necropolis in samarkand, uzbekistan. #onassignment @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #uzbekistan #samarkand #shakhizinda #necropolis #cemetery #beauty #wind #changes #ourperception #choiceless #existence #doing #death
