Stunning 3-Month Exhibition: Kyrgyzstan’s Cities of the Dead to Life come alive at the Ismaili Centre, Toronto

Death is rarely thought of as a beautiful thing. However, when photographer Margaret Morton travelled through Kyrgyzstan, she became captivated by the beauty and majesty of the unique cemeteries she encountered.

Morton’s photographs brought more than 175 people to the Ismaili Centre, Toronto on 9 May 2015, for the opening of a three-month exhibition and launch of the book, Cities of the Dead: The Ancestral Cemeteries of Kyrgyzstan, authored by Professor Margaret Morton (Cooper Union) with texts contributed by Dr Elmira Köchümkulova and Altyn Kapalova (University of Central Asia) and Professor Nasser Rabbat (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).

The exhibition is open to the public, from Tuesday to Sunday at the Ismaili Centre, Toronto until 30 July 2015.
