In Strength: Yaks

Yaks are two thousand pound oxen that can only live above 10,000ft elevation. For a millenia they have been a backbone of transportation, trading, wool, milk and sometimes meat in Himalayan regions. They also hold a mythical place in the lore of the Himalayas. This collection of images made over many years celebrates the strength, beauty and remarkable sight of yaks thriving in the highest mountains on earth.
