Tibetan exile project

 

This is the second portrait of Ngo-dug Lhamo, 89 years old, who is an original refugee from the first exodus of Tibetans in 1959.  She left with her family, yaks and goats and journeyed by foot across the Himalayas after the Chinese annexation.  She finally found refuge in Nepal and now lives in Tashi Palkiel the largest Tibetan settlement in Nepal, which is just outside Pokhara.

This and many other photos will be included in an upcoming interactive documentary project which is still in production. Watch this space.
