Item description for Greater Tibet: Where Earth Touches the Heavens (Travel) by Jimmy Lam & Ju K Tan...

GREATER TIBET: Where Earth Touches the Heavens travels beyond the Tibetan Autonomous Region to reveal the less seen faces and places of Qinghai, northern Yunnan, Gansu and western Sichuan. Photographer Jimmy Lam braves hardy terrain and weather to capture the atmosphere of a land that is newly opened to the rest of the world. Lams untiring fascination with Greater Tibet has taken him many times to various parts of the Tibet region. He has developed a keen sensitivity towards the seasons of Tibetan nature and culture.

In this beautiful album, Lam shares his personal perspective on the landscapes of Greater Tibet, its peoples and their beliefs and way of life. Award-winning photographer Ed Kashi calls this collection "sensitive, textured and photogenic" and an "accomplishment [that] lends a vital and new view into a land that few people get to see and even fewer try to photograph".

Reviews - What do customers think about Greater Tibet: Where Earth Touches the Heavens (Travel)?

You need to have this great book in your collection beause..  Oct 25, 2004
Jimmy Lam goes beyond the stereotypical coffee-table book and makes photographs that examine the identity and place of the people of Tibet. I had the good fortune to meet him this summer and hear him speak about the work, and quickly discovered that he is a gifted photographer who is passionate about his photography, which is readily apparent in the photographs from this book. He's also in possession of excellent photographic craft, which is not an issue to the average viewer (as it should be) but appeals to photographers with a keen eye for detail. There are lots of very subtle nuances to his work that encourages viewers to slow down the pace a bit and take the time to understand the Tibetan people better, which is always an honorable goal with a book about people from a different place.
