Chen Yewei

From the Himalayas to the Karakoram, there are fourteen mountains measuring 8,000 meters or higher, as well as glaciers, rivers, plants, animals, and the human groups and civilizations that have flourished in these desolate places. These two massive mountain ranges contain the most magnificent natural and cultural landscapes on the Asian continent. Chen Yewei records these landscapes, but he does not consider his adventures and hardships important. He uses the world’s finest and most expensive camera to record the force and delicacy of these mountain ranges and glaciers, but he also expresses the vivid, magnificent emotional bond between man and natureThese emotional bonds, which are almost religious, permeate these pictures.
