May 2012. Tibet province, China. Portrait of a Tibetan farmer from the village of Laide at 3100m high on the trail of the buddhist pilgrimage of the Kawa Karpo. After several days camping on the mountains on the trail of the pilgrimage, we made it to this farmer's house. The next morning as I had just worken up, I saw him coming down the mountain bathed in that amazing morning light. A few minutes later and after waking up my assistant to set up the lighting, I was making this photograph. He is standing on the very edge of the ridge.
