Kaviar Forge & Gallery presents “Chinese Turkestan,” a collection of photography by Ryan Pyle, which reveals a dying Chinese culture in the area known as Turkestan. The people of this region remain as they have for generations as herdsmen, farmers, craftsmen and shop owners who buy and sell animals and fuel at trading posts, go to mosque regularly and watch cockfighting competitions. Pyle, who has lived in China since 2002 and is a regular contributor to The New York Times, says he created the collection of images to capture this culture before its slow but sure absorption into the culture of the Xinjiang Province. The exhibit is part of Louisville’s Photo Biennial and continues through Oct. 29. —Kevin Gibson
