Greater Tibet – Where earth touches the heaven –

Jimmy Lam, Ju K Tan

“Herein lie glimpses of Tibet as it is rarely seen. Braving hardy terrain and harsh weather, Jimmy Lam ventures beyond the well-visited Tibetan Autonomous Region to witness the raw beauty of one of the most inaccessible places on earth – Greater Tibet, where the Shangri-La of legend lives. The world is only just starting to experience pieces of Tibet in the further reaches of Qinghai, Gansu, western Sichuan and northwestern Yunnan. An untiring fascination has taken Lam time and time again to various parts of this and and equipped him with a keen sensitivity towards the seasons of Tibetan nature and culture. In this insightful and intimate album, Lam shares his personal perspective on the land called Greater Tibet – its awesome scenery, its unique peoples and their fervent beliefs, elaborate attire and celebrations, and traditional way of life.

During his early years as a photographer Jimmy Lam’s portfolio included images of nature and wildlife from North America and Europe. More than a decade later, he has shifted his attention to Asia. An associate of the Royal Photographic Society, Lam travels around the region to photograph its peoples and preserve their cultures in print. Knowing Tibet as well as he does, he has fallen in love with the land and its people. Lams photographs are internationally published.”
