At home with Joseph Rock

rocksroom, originally uploaded by mutikonka.

This picture is of Joseph Rock in his study at his house in Nguluko, [now Yuhu], a small Naxi village about 10km north of Lijiang. It is a pretty farming village, quite isolated - and hence perfect for the quiet scholarship that Rock practised.

Note the photographic plates drying above the bed.
