Photo of the day Novastan Buy Print Postcard

You can buy Novastan’s Pictures of the day

As of November 19 2021, Novastan is offering its readers the possibility to buy some of its Photos of the day. With this, you can support local and European photographers, as well as Novastan!

Everyday, Novastan publishes in its three languages (French, German and English) a picture representing Central Asia. Be it a landscape, people or food, it has become a central part of Novastan’s work to have Central Asia discovered by everyone. 

Today, we are moving forward. You can now buy some pictures Novastan presented to you and have them printed and delivered to your home. With every purchase, you will support the photographer as well as Novastan. 

For more news and analysis from Central Asia, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Telegram, Linkedin or Instagram.

For now, we are starting with 19 pictures from 15 photographers, Central Asians or Europeans. Each of them has published great photos of this beautiful region. 

These pictures are listed below. If you fancy one or several of them, you will have the choice between three formats: 10x15cm (postcard), 20x30cm (medium) and 30x40cm (large). Your picture(s) will be printed in professional quality and sent out to your home. For that, we will work with a professional photo lab, based in France. 

This will work if you live in Europe. If you live elsewhere in the world, please send us an email to photo[at] and we will figure it out.
