Stories and photos from travels to central Asia

Ray Uzanas will share stories and photographs of his recent travels to the Central Asian countries that are part of the fabled Silk Road of antiquity during a free illustrated lecture at 7 p.m. June 18 at Mystic & Noank Library.

These former states of the old Soviet Union, collectively referred to as the "Stans," are a region governed under dictatorships, rife with geopolitical turbulence, and in some regions, its people living in the harshest of environments.

Uzanas, a Stonington resident, worked as a chemist in the industrial diamond industry before pursuing another career as a writer, photographer and adventurer. In the past two years, he has traveled to Indonesia, Patagonia, the Arctic Circle, Australia and New Guinea.
