The Human World

A mix of ancient and contemporary cultural images. The first 18 photos below are from Mustang, Nepal, a semi-independent kingdom on the north side of the Himalayas that resembles old Tibet more than the rest of Nepal. More images from Mustang may be found in the Travel section. Following those are images from the Mayan temple complex at Lamani in Belize, from Teotihuacan, Mexico (taken in 1964), from the American southwest, from northern British Columbia and Alaska, and from the Sahara Desert in Tunisia.
