tibetan man in muktinath

    Newer Older

    shot with a canon d30 and a 17-35f2.8 lens. holding a white/gold reflector in my left hand to illuminate his face. this is early morning at 3800m altitude, hence the special light. muktinath is a hindu pilgrimage, in the lower mustang, just north of annapurna. this man fled from tibet with the chinese invasion to the mountains of mustang and nepal.

    the white in the blurry background is snow from the annapurnas
