Photo series by Xu Bo: The Gaze of Kun and Peng into the Distance

The difficulties in practice of aerial photography — either with helicopters originally or with unmanned aerial vehicles which appear to be popular lately — are probably beyond the experience of photographers who have never been exposed to this field. Moreover, the shots in The Gaze of Kun and Peng into the Distance are all taken in no man’s lands of Tibet, which indicates that the difficulties are particularly beyond imagination.

Vincent Munier au Tibet | Sur les traces du léopard des neiges

Le grand photographe animalier Vincent Munier s’est rendu dans l’une des dernières régions vierges du globe, le haut plateau tibétain, pour mener une quête d’un genre particulier. Cette zone totalement isolée constitue un sanctuaire préservé pour des espèces endémiques et méconnues. Mais un animal en particulier faisait rêver Vincent : le craintif et reclus léopard des neiges… Il nous raconte ici cette traque de l’impossible.
