About

Éric Valli is a fascinating French ethnographic photographer best known for his excellent work in the National Geographic Magazine. Specializing in photoessays on people living and working in remote and inaccessible places, Valli is especially interested in the people who live in and around the Himalaya Mountains, and in 1999 directed the brilliant feature film HIMALAYA, which became the first Nepalese film to be nominated for an Oscar.



This image is from Valli's book, "The Honey Hunters of Nepal", about the Gurung tribesmen of west-central Nepal, who use simple tools under extremely precarious conditions to collect the wild honey which is their livelihood.



The photograph itself measures 17" x 25".
