With their tents rolled up in bundles and lashed to the back of yaks as they move across the grasslands, Tibetan nomads offer a rare perspective on life. Their world operates on a rhythm completely different from the one to which most people are accustomed. Nomads' lives are tuned to the growth of grass, the births of animals and the movement of their herds. For thousands of years they survived in a harsh environment by raising animals. However, they didn't merely eke out a living; they created a unique culture and were part of a remarkable civilization that was the most powerful empire in Asia over 1,300 years ago. Today, their way of life is threatened as economic and political changes sweep across the steppes. With evocative images and insightful text, Daniel Miller presents an unparalleled portrait of a vanishing culture.

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.
