Description About the author
 
This book presents a unique collection of 50 photographs taken by two Russian travelers, a Buryat, Gombozhab Tsybikov, and a Kalmuck, Ovshe Norzunov, in 1900-1901, at the request of the Imperial Russian Geographical Society, St. Petersburg. These images are believed to be the earliest photographic re-presentations of Lhasa and other famous religious sites of Tibet, the then Forbidden Land. The images are introduced with the thrilling story of Tsybikovs and Norzunovs travels related by Alexander Andreyev. He also dwells on the history of the first use of field photography by Russian pioneer explorers of Central Asia. The introduction is followed by the narratives of the travelers themselves, which abound in many details of Tibets traditional society and religious life in the last years of its hermit-like existence.
