Amdo and Kham Photo Gallery by Martin Newman

One journey through Amdo and Kham, two perspectives. Earlier, in a video post called “Journey to Amdo and Kham,” we saw the lovely video by Annick Blanc of her 4000 kilometer exploration of the Amdo and Kham regions of Tibet. Here, we see the same journey through the lens of her travel companion, long-time Tibet photographer Martin Newman.  Martin’s extraordinary images offer us a rare, clear-eyed and humane view of  daily life in a part of Tibet that is becoming more cut off from the outside world by the day.
