Nazgul in Josh, Kyrgyzstan / by Zachary Krahmer

Nazgul sits in her home in Josh, Kyrgyzstan and enjoys tea with her friends. She was kidnapped by her current husband one year prior in a fairly common practice known as “bride-kidnapping”. At the time she did not know her husband, who had just completed his military service in Batken. Now they are happily expecting their first child to arrive in the next 4 months.
