This is a book of portraits but to gain a true sense of the Khampas it is important to show the land that shapes them.
Throughout history the Khampas have been living in harmony with the extreme forces of nature on the roof of the world with all its beauty and power, their very being inseparable from the land and from the spirits and deities that reside in the land, rivers and mountains.
The Tibetans deeply respect the land and see themselves as part of it, not separate from it. They are always careful not to put the land out of its natural cycle by causing disturbance to its fine balance, both on a spiritual as well as a physical level.
