I’ve always primarily been interested in nature photography so before my first trip to Bhutan I was expecting to focus on the landscapes and temples but street photography and portraiture really intrigued me.

In winter 2018 that I had been invited back there to shoot an assignment for MyBhutan. I returned to the country, excited to focus on portrait capturing photography of the Brokpas, a tribe consisting of yak herders who live in the disconnected, eastern village of Merak. From the airport, it was a 24-hour drive all the way out to the village.
