Description

Ten years and many journeys later, Sankar, Sridhar shares his love of this Himalayan shadowland through evocative images of an untouched landscape, its people and a threatened way of life. A land whose tumultuous history - of intrigue, betrayal, invasion and uneasy alliance and whose best-known ruler was a half blood prince - is reflected in its dramatic topography. Over a decade, the author has travelled extensively, walking this land and its frozen rivers to experience a culture and a region under siege by modernity. He has lived with the nomadic Chang-pas, and with monks in cavernous monasteries. His photographs show the reader Ladakh's remotest areas, places that are rarely talked about - in books and guides, on the internet or in the innumerable published articles on the region - let alone captured in photographs. Trance Himalaya covers hitherto uncharted territory. The vision of this book is not blocked by the mountains, but spreads over all of Ladakh, unveiling the quintessential Ladakhi world. Its photographs capture the essence of timeless Ladakh and many of its mysteries that lie close to tourist hotspots and, perhaps mercifully, escape the notice of travel agents and tour operators. Extracts from the author's diary convey the depth of a unique culture now touched and affected by the modern world, with first-hand observations of its popular culture, faith and the lives of its inhabitants, including the Chang-pa, the region's oldest nomadic tribe, and its monks, caught between tradition and the tides of modernity. Trance Himalaya celebrates Ladakh: It is an ode to the colours of desolation, a testament to the warmth of inhospitableness and a tribute to the benevolence of this hostile region.
