TIBET MEMORIES

 In Tibet

This week marks the 10th anniversary of the Tibetan Symposium at the Aspen Institute in 2008.  For me, it is also a great memory of the photo exhibit I mounted at that occasion, which started my relationship with The American Himalayan Foundation, https://www.himalayan-foundation.org/

In May 2006, with a guide, driver, and precise itinerary described in a Chinese permit, I traveled across Tibet’s Changtang Plateau from Lhasa to Mount Kailash. Motivated by the words and images of those who had explored Tibet, I wanted to see this land and its people through my own eyes.

Tibet is sometime called ” The third Pole” for its water reserve, although it is now an endangered ecosystem because of Chinese development and mining.

The photo is Yamdrok Tso, a great example of the different tones of blue color the high altitudes lakes show case.
