Photographer's Note

Here's an oldie from the archives...

---

This picture was taken in Tagong in western Sichuan. It shows a woman with prayer wheel in traditional Tibetan dress and her (grand)son who is sporting a Chinese army costume.

To me this picture symbolizes the Tibetan dilemma.

TAGONG is a small community up in the highlands in western Sichuan, not far from Kangding.
Most people living here are Tibetans. Their traditional way of life is disappearing fast
because of China's economic growth and the arrival of tourism.
