Nepal-Upper Dolpo

Images in this collection were made over three years in the farthest regions of the notoriously inaccessible, mysterious, sparsely populated land of Inner Dolpo, on the border of Western Nepal and Tibet. Month-long treks in the service of Nomads Clinic medical team offered an intimate view of this rarely visited region that is shielded from the outside world by a ring of high Trans-Himalayan mountains and passes. It was some of the most difficult physical and most gratifying photographic work of my career to date. I continue to be equally haunted and inspired by the powerful experience of Dolpo.
