"Drolma La" Mt. Kailash, Tibet 2001

Drolma La is the highest pass on the Mt. Kailash kora at 5630m above sea level. Considered sacred in Buddhism, Hinduism, Bon and Jainism the mountain itself has never been climbed (except by Milarepa) due to it's religious significance.

I reached the pass, pausing on the final knee deep in snow climb up to it to cry, breathless from the altitude and exhaustion on Day 2 of the 3 day 52km (32mile) circumambulation of Kangri Rinpoche, Mount Mehru, the 'Precious snow mountain' in Western Tibet. You can't stay there long without oxygen due to the altitude, but we lingered to mediatate, leave offerings and take photos until the thin air and cold took their toll and we had to descend. It remains to this day one of the highest points, in every reading of the word, of my wandering life.

From the "Uchujin's Stitched Panoramas" series - Because the world doesn't always fit into nice convenient aspect ratios

Stitched panorama of 3 frames originally shot on film.

2953x1988 px at 300ppi

1/1

"A collection of stitched together multi-shot Panoramas, because the world doesn't always fit into nice convenient aspect ratios."
Shot on multiple film and digital formats, in various countries around the world from 1999 onwards.
Deliberately not cropped to rectangles, the uneven edges showing where individual frames have been joined and emphasizing that the scenes continue outside of the constraints of the image.

All of the places in these images have a deep personal significance to me. In these places significant events or periods of my life took place.
These places made me who I am.

An ongoing series, to be added to throughout 2022 (There will be no more than 15 total images), of 1/1* editions.
(*Except #1 which was minted as 1/3 so I could giveaway one each to @seanbonner and @mujuworld as a special thanks for getting me here)
