DESCRIPTIONAng Gyalzen Sherpa, Gokyo, Nepal
I met Ang Gyalzen in Gokyo, 4,750m above sea level, up in the Nepalese Himalayas. He was keen to pose and brought out his horse, Karsang, for the shoot on the shores of Gokyo Lake.
AUTHORThe most amazing experiences in my life have come through photography. From climbing to Camp Two on Everest; photographing axe-wielding Black Metal bands in the woods of Norway; meeting a snowmobile-riding Arctic vicar in the the most Northerly town in the world; or drinking beer with Finnish ice fishermen on a frozen lake, all the most rewarding things I’ve done have come from the times I challenged myself, and spent time with people in their world, rather than staying comfortably in mine. It is this outsider perspective on other people’s amazing lives that has produced some of my best work.
