Tibetan Autonomous Region – West Sichuan, China
Photography Project by Jose Jeuland
Travel and Documentary Photography of The Autonomous Region of Tibet
As José explored the land, he set his sight on the free spirited kids with cute rosy cheeks and folks working hard in the fields. People there are filled with vitality and strength amidst the harsh weather and living conditions. The place is filled with temples and monasteries and the people are devout buddhists. They lead simples lives and are devoted to their strong religious beliefs. Donning comfortable and conservative clothes, they shield themselves from the harsh weather while making a statement with their individual styles. The natives are welcoming and hospitable, making them enjoyable to be around as they make you feel comfortable as a visitor.
Roaming along the streets, José saw monks in coloured robes walking about and people holding prayer wheels. The place is indeed rich in its own unique culture and traditions that have been around for many generations. Colourful prayer flags fly high and visibly in the wind which are seen in many places around the area as they hold great significance to the natives. Red seems to be a prominent colour which is related to life force and preservation in Buddhism.
Along the green pastures are yaks and sometimes sheep and goats grazing the fields. You see the countryside with mountains, hills and other rocky terrains that makes up the scenic view of the landscape of the Tibetan Autonomous Region.
Agriculture is the native’s main industry and food is vital for them especially because of the country’s cold climate. It keeps them warm and give them sufficient energy to carry out their activities for the day. Houses are made of stones, soil and other raw materials and people live in small block houses clustered around the land, filled with colourful ornaments and decorations. Some houses are tucked away in remote areas, away from the city and roads, and closer to the vast nature that the place has to offer.
