We recently discovered the Tibet work of travel photographer Jørgen Johanson, and have been fascinated by his excellent images of contemporary Amdo and Kham. Jørgen kindly has agreed to share a selection of photos spanning three trips he took over the last several years for a gallery on Eastern Tibet. Thank you, Jørgen!

More about Jørgen Johanson:
“In 1985 I went on my first trip to Asia. After having completed the Annapurna circuit in Nepal I was hooked. Both on Asia and on travel. Before going to Nepal I bought my first camera. Since then I have always brought a camera. In later years the main objective on my travels has been to photograph. A couple of years ago I took 2-3 years off just to travel. Most of my trips have gone to Asia, but recently I have also made some trips to Africa. I keep coming back to both India and China. Areas with Tibetan culture and the Himalayas really fascinate me.”
