Photographer Michele Palazzi, through his collection entitled Black Gold Hotel, put the new face of Mongolia into pictures. This country located between the south of Russia and the north of China, is famous for its nomadic populations and its freezing cold in winter.

Nevertheless, a less famous aspect is brought out in these pictures. In fact, cooper, gold and coal deposits attract foreign investors, giving a little help to the economy of the country, that sees its ways of life changing with a significant way.
