Photo blogger Serikzhan Kovlanbaev presents  [ru] a photo report from a recent exhibition of works by Saule Suleimenova, perhaps the best known contemporary artist in the country. Suleimenova has been described  by another blogger as “one of Kazakhstan’s deepest, most interesting and prolific artists”.
The theme of the exhibition is Zhanaozen , an oil town in southwestern Kazakhstan where police and riot troops clashed  with unarmed protesters in December 2011, killing at least 15 people and injuring nearly 100.
