Tibetan Lama - Nepal 2007
"I first saw Shring Lama leading a Tibetan Dance celebrating the final day of the Annual Chame Horse Racing festival. Age 87, he's well respected and the oldest man for many miles. I ask my Nepali companion if he could arrange to visit Shring Lama in his village. Next day we are welcomed us into his home and over a few cups of tea he tells me the story of his life. How he came to Nepal as a young man from Tibet to start a family. I brought offerings of rice and lentils and when Shring Lama insisted on a return gift, I asked quite simply for this photograph."
