Entry Description

There's a remote area in Southeast of Tibet, also the East of Himalaya, which is called Nyainqentanglha East Range. Probably 90% of people never heard of. However, this area have over hundreds of 6000M+ peaks, countless rivers, valleys, and glaciers. Here are some I found and photographed during my 3-week long expedition in this area this March. This set of image unfolds the mystery of this mountain range and it also reveal my inner connection with these mountains and their souls. They're giant, magnificent,and powerful.

About Photographer

I love outdoor and wilderness since I was a little kid. I picked up my first DSLR in 2010. At first, I just wanted to use the camera to record different things in my life. Two years later, I started taking landscape photograph and realize it combines my passion for wilderness and photography. It’s so charming that I couldn’t get away from it. Photography is an art of catching the light and expressing the personal view for me, and it also contains emotion. Images are so powerful that can transport emotion to everyone who seen them. Through these photographs, I try to express my feelings for the locations I visit and the beauty of nature. I attempt to bring the experiences of my journey to the viewer. It is totally subjective and is my form of escape from the busy society. It’s a way that I can communicate with nature.
