“My photography focuses on the documentation of religious culture. I spent two months in the village of Tarshul, in the Szechuan Province, which has the second largest group of Tibetans in China. My art project depicts the simple and authentic life of this Tibetan village. The current generation of young Tibetans is facing a challenging situation. Due to government intervention, young people are no longer allowed to become monks. And with the growth in modernization, the number of shepherds and monks has gradually disappeared, and more and more young people have left for the cities. My work bears witness to the slow deterioration of Himalayan culture among the youth.”
