Children of Zanskar
by Jarek Kotomski
Sir Francis Younghusband, the famous British explorer who travelled widely in the Himalayas at the turn of the 20th century, once remarked:

"If, while still impressed with the immensity of things as witnessed by the mountains and the stars, we turn our attention to the tiny gentian at our feet, we are moved by the tender graciousness which could have produced so fine a delicacy of beauty from such austere and terrible surroundings."

"Children of Zanskar" is a photography book documenting the exceptional lives of the youngest inhabitants of Lingshed, one of the most isolated settlements in the world, situated at over 12,000 feet deep in the Indian Himalayas.
