Glimpses of Tibet: Plateaus, people and faith


Drastic changes have taken place in "the roof of the world" over the past five decades. Connected by daily flights and world-class trains, Tibet is now opening up to the world after being isolated for centuries.

With its economy going through rapid transformation, the only aspect that has remained unchanged is its people. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Tibet autonomous region, we present 50 handpicked images from seven Chinese photographers who have closely followed the changes over the years.
