Photographer and artist born in China, one-time member of Agence VU, Gao Bo has created a body of work marked by spirituality. The works gathered in this book were taken during Gao Bo’s five journeys to Tibet between 1985 and 1995. Exactly 10 years after the last images were taken, he went back to these photographs of Tibet, rediscovering them and producing new formal associations that ignored chronology. With this process, the artist both highlights the limits of language and strives to overcome the incommunicability of his experience in Tibet. For him, it is less of a sacrifice than an offering.
