Tibet : journey to the forbidden city : retracing the steps of Alexandra David-Néel by Tiziana Baldizzone( Book )

2 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Paris in 1868, Alexandra David-Neel spent some thirteen years traveling though China and Tibet, walking unknown routes, discovering and photographing new cultures and people, and exploring their traditions and religious beliefs. "The land of the gentleman brigands" was the name she gave to an area in the far west of China, populated by fierce and dangerous tribes, through which she traveled several times in her attempts to reach Lhasa, the Forbidden City of Tibet." "Today, Alexandra David-Neel's photographs and the written accounts of her expeditions remain as testimony to her courage. But as she wrote at the time, she regretted that her pictures "would not convey the true colors of this wonderful land." Some 70 years later, photographers Tiziana and Gianni Baldizzone traveled to Tibet to discover for themselves this fascinating land, to visit the same tribes, and to photograph the people and the landscapes - to "give color" to the impressions of Alexandra David-Neel. With more than 145 stunning illustrations, their book is a celebration of color, showing in marvelous detail the panoramic landscapes, the faces and expressions of individual people, and the splendid decoration of the costumes, as elaborate today as in the 1920s. This photographic pilgrimage journeys through both time and space to a land rarely seen by Western eyes."--Jacket
Impressions of the Sahara by Jean-Loc Le Quellec( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in French and English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Impressions of the Sahara sets out to explore the cultural heritage of this little-studied region. The chapters follow the caravan routes across the desert, stopping to celebrate local traditions such as the wall paintings of the women of Mauritania; the colorful markets of the Moroccan oasis towns; the illuminated manuscripts copied by generations of scribes and scholars; and the raw earth mosques of Niger, decorated with elaborate carvings that have survived centuries of exposure to the elements." "Illustrated in vibrant color throughout, Impressions of the Sahara is a photographic record of the colors of the desert and the artistic heritage of those who live there."--Jacket

Les enfants nomades by Tiziana Baldizzone( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Présentation du mode de vie des peuples nomades qui parcourent toujours ces terres souvent inhospitalières et désertiques tels les steppes (Amdopas, Khampas, Ngoloks, Monglols, Khazakhs), les territoires glacés de la Sibérie (Nenets, Dolgans) ou les déserts africains (Touaregs, Peuls Bororos, Maures, Rabatis, Khalkhs). En plus des raisons qui les amènent à se déplacer et la façon dont ils se sont adaptés à leur environnement (vêtements, habitations) tout en poursuivant leurs activités de subsistance, on explique la place qu'occupent les enfants au sein de ces communautés voyageuses. Distribués sous près de trente thématiques visant à illustrer des aspects de leur mode de vie, magnifiquement illustrées de saisissants portraits témoignant de leurs rites et traditions, les clichés de cet album témoignent, sans censure, de la singularité de ces peuples qui ont très peu subi d'influences du monde moderne.
