Samuel Zuder, a photographer from Hamburg, has created something amazing. Something beautiful. Something exciting. Something adventurous. Something crazy: In 2012 he spent several weeks in Tibet’s hardly accessible Mount Kailash region. He’d taken an analog 4×5” large-format camera with him, numerous sheet film holders and hundreds of Polaroid and color negative films. He decided for this slow and extremely demanding working method in order to approach the pilgrims and Mount Kailash, which means so much to them, with due respect as a photographer.
Another particularity about his adventure is the fact that because of extremely strict travel restrictions getting a permit for this area is extremely difficult for foreigners. That’s why the Kailash region has never been recorded in so much detail before. Zuder has invested many years and a lot of money in his project to finally be able to realize it: In October 2016 it will finally be published as a book with a complex and elegant design in a limited edition of not more than 2000 printed issues. Since the printing costs, however, are quite high, Samuel Zuder has launched a crowdfunding project so you can support him with realizing his project by pre-ordering his book or by buying limited prints and picture postcard series.
