After graduating from Mongolia’s University of Arts and Culture, Bazarsukh worked as a photographer for the daily newspapers Unen and Mongolia Today. In 2008, Bazarsukh became a member of Gamma, the first independent photo agency in Mongolia, and has exhibited his work in China as well as Mongolia.
