From the Organizer
Join National Geographic magazine photographer Michael Yamashita as he shares images and stories from his newest publication, Shangri-La: Along the Tea Road to Lhasa. Yamashita, a 30-year professional documentary photographer and filmmaker, specializes in topics in Asia.
Yamashita says that the inspiration for this latest folio started in Jiuzhaigou (the Valley of Nine Villages), where crystal-clear waters cascade from glacial peaks into a progression of emerald lakes, ponds, streams and virulets, punctuated by blue-green waterfalls and luxurious vegetation. Yamashita’s Chinese photographer friends all cite Jiuzhaigou as the most photogenic place in China.
