Description
In 2011, photographer Taylor Weidman was given special permission by the government of Nepal to travel in the restricted area of Mustang. As he notes, "Mustang, or the former Kingdom of Lo, is hidden ... in one of the most remote corners of Nepal. Hemmed in by the world's highest mountain range to the south and an occupied and shuttered Tibet to the north, this tiny Tibetan kingdom has remained virtually unchanged since the 15th century. Today, Mustang is arguably the best-preserved example of traditional Tibetan life in the world." Yet this unique, ethnically Tibetan culture faces great changes, now that a new road is being built through the region. This album of large color photos is a superb record of the Loba people on the cusp of modernity, accompanied by extensive notes on their culture.
