Kham then and now. A photoblog showing how eastern Tibet looked in the 1920s and how the same places and people look now. Based on the explorations of botanist Joseph Rock.
I stumbled across this photograph collection while researching my namesake, well sort of. My name is Joseph Rock, the third most famous person by that name according to Google :) although my name was coincidental, since although my mother has been a life long Natl. Geographic reader she did not recall him when I was christened.I've been interested in Dr. Rock the explorer for quite some time, but copies of his work are hard to come by in the states and usually come with a price tag in the hundreds of (US) dollars. This particular photo really speaks to me. Thanks for posting it. -Joseph Rock
