Photographer's Note

In Uzbekistan you can see many people with the golden smile. Women and men with gold teeth are a common sight on the streets. It has traditionally been the sign of a status and a symbol of wealth but also a decoration (enhancing facial beauty). The gold in the teeth is actually their savings (local banks are not trusted too much).
