China's policy of settling all of 2.25 million Tibetan nomads is a death sentence to the nomadic way of life in Tibet, an intrinsic part of Tibetan culture. History has shown the tragic consequences to communities and traditional ways of life when people are forced off their lands. Stand with Tibetan nomads and tell China to stop forcing nomads off their land.
Last Fall, I spent 5 days exploring Tibet. I wanted to attempt to mimic through these images and sounds how beautifully strange of an experience it was. In some ways, it was breath taking. In other ways, I felt tension and anxiety. Many months later and I still don't completely know how I feel about it.
But -- there's no other place on the planet that I'd rather go back to than Tibet.
