Photographer's Note

Everything man made eventually goes back to nature. Holy chortens are built to protect the people of Laddakh from earthquakes and other disasters. I was not sure if these were chortens or the places bodies are placed in to be burned. Laddakh is mostly unbelievably barren, but fascinating!
