With their homes rolled up in bundles and lashed to the backs of yaks as they move across the steppes, Tibetan nomads offer a rare perspective on life. Their world operates on a rhythm quite different from the one to which we are accustomed. Over thousands of years, Tibetan nomads accommodated to their environment, learning to live with what it offered instead of changing and molding the landscape to suit their needs. Thus, Tibetan nomads have much to teach us about living in harmony with the land.
For over 30 years, Daniel Miller has been living and working among nomads in the Himalaya and Tibetan Plateau. With 238 color images, this collection of photographs are a record of a vanishing culture, a testimony to way of life that is ending. The author's images are complimented with 18 photographs taken by astronauts of the Tibetan landscape that help one to better understand the scale and nature of the land the nomads live in.

Bought my first camera, a Canon FTb, in 1974 when I went to Nepal for the first time. For most of the last 30 years I have been working with nomads in Afghanistan, Bhutan, China, Mongolia, Nepal and Tibet. I have not gone digitall; I still use a Canon F-1 manual camera.
