Anatoliy Georgievich Lubinets is a choreographer originally from Donetsk, Ukraine. In 1972, he traveled to Ashgabat for an internship with a local ballet theatre, where he met his future wife and decided to continue his career in Turkmenistan. In the early 80’s he was a pioneer of aerobics in Ashgabat, where he established his first aerobics studio along with his choreography studio. Both are still integral parts of his life.

This project was produced as part of the NOOR Nikon masterclass in documentary photography in 2016.
