Hi, I am Assel. I was born in a small village in Central Asia. Ever since I was little, I have always wanted to be a part of something bigger, something more and something different. I didn’t want to become just another village girl who would never see the outside world. I followed my heart and through many challenges made my way to one of the biggest cities in the world, the Big Apple.

New York made me dizzy. Everything was bigger and very different. I started exploring the city by taking pictures. The more pictures I took the more I liked it. I captured diversity, I captured culture, I captured life and I found that “something more”. I fell in love with photography and it has become my passion. Since then I capture the moments of life that we all want to remember.
