All the photographs that make up this entire image were taken in and around the valley of Muktinath, which is located in the Trans-Himalayan region of Mustang in Northern Nepal. Individually, they are pictures of many of its different aspects, but grouped together they become a coded description of its inner nature.
I made the first version of this piece for a photo exhibition, entitled, ‘Virtual Mustang’, held in the Lazimpat gallery café, Kathmandu, Nepal in November 2005.
