Profile

Hamid Sardar-Afkhami is a professional photographer as well as a scholar of Tibetan and Mongol languages who received his Ph.D. from Harvard University. After moving to Nepal in the late 1980’s and exploring Tibet and the Himalayas for more than a decade, he went to live in Outer Mongolia in 2000 to make a record of people’s customs and manners of life before they became divorced from their natural and spiritual environment.

Inspired by the pioneers of photography during the Age of Exploration, Sardar-Afkhami dedicates his cameras to making a visual record of the world’s last nomad tribes. Spanning over almost a decade, Sardar-Afkhami’s expeditions have produced a single important photographic collection concentrating on nomadic culture at the cusp of a great irreversible change.
