Describe this character. Describe everything you see and everything you think that tells you about this man. Where do you think he lives? When do you think he lives? Try placing him out of context and write what happens. Tibetan Portraits by Photographer Shinya Arimoto
NOMAD, LEHDAK The Drokpas, or nomads, of Tibet are a visible presence in this province bordering the Himalayas of India. They travel in groups of families; the men tend to the yaks in the grasslands while women make butter and cheese. They also weave and tan sheep and yak skins used to make garments to protect them from the fierce Himalayan winters.
