Shangri-La - an exhibition of photographs along the tea road to Lhasa
by Michael Yamashita
26 October - 17 November, 2012
SHANGRI-LA â€“ the name of the utopian lamasery described by novelist James Hilton in his 1933 novel, Lost Horizon, summons visions of a magical city floating high above the earth, hidden away amidst towering mountains, where the secret of eternal peace, youth and happiness might be found. While many places have claimed the honor and the name, there is no doubt the mysterious kingdom of Tibet and its outlying regions in western China were Hiltonâ€™s inspiration for Shangri-La. Renowned National Geographic photographer, Michael Yamashita has made numerous trips to this elusive paradse, exploring the routes to Tibet by following the legendary Chamagudao, the ancient Tea-Horse Road, which winds through dizzying mountain passes in a circuitous route from Sichuan and Yunnan provinces in China on its way to Lhasa, capital of Tibet.
