Wong How Man. From Manchuria to Tibet
39 €
CERS, 1998. 232 pp, 280 color photos. An incredible photo essay on the peoples and scenery of the remote wilderness of China, Mongolia, Manchuria and Tibet. Large-format hardcover. Man's work illuminates both the region's beauty and the harsh realities of life there. This book chronicles a quarter century of explorer Wong How Man's Inner Asian expeditions, providing a rare glimpse of ethnic groups whose lives and customs mirror the enchanting yet sometimes brutal environments in which they live. Here in the hinterlands of Asia, from Manchuria and Mongolia to the Silk Road and Tibetan Plateau, traditions carry on as they have for centuries as modernization slowly makes its way to what Wong calls the 'Backyard of Asia'. 'From Manchuria to Tibet' transcends political boundaries to focus on the diversity and interconnectedness of unique peoples in beautifully unusual landscapes. More than a photo essa y, this publication delves into the history, traditions, stories and dreams of colorful indigenous peoples and their surroundings, often in formidable terrain. The author has spent 25 years focused on these remote areas of Inner Asia, where few foreigners tread. He has recorded the last of many vanishing traditions among these ethnic minorities, who have lived bravely in the challenging environment around them.]
