June 2009. LItang, China.
Litang is a small town in the Chinese province of Sichuan. Geographically it could be located in China, but culturally it is pretty much 100% Tibetan. Majority of people living in Litang are Tibetan, they speak Tibetan language, cook Tibetan food, live in the houses built in Tibetan way and wear Tibetan clothes. Litang is also a home to a very large monastery, where a group of monks follow Tibetan version of Buddhism. This is one of those monks.
