Public Lecture Series with Ryan Pyle

Sacred Mountains of China

This event will be streamed live. Please visit our Live Stream page at 7pm on the evening of the event to view the lecture for free.

Join adventurer and renowned photographer, Ryan Pyle, as he spends months exploring and photographing Western China’s remote Sacred Mountains in an effort to better understand these most sacred Tibetan regions. His human-powered adventure is “one for the ages” as he explores the remote provinces of Qinghai, Tibet, Sichuan and Yunnan. His Sacred walks around Minya Konka, Amne Machin, Kailash and Kawa Karpo offer some imagery and stories that haven't been documented since explorers Kingdon Ward and Joseph Rock made their epic expeditions in the 1920s and 1930s.

Born in Toronto, Canada, Ryan Pyle spent his early years close to home. After obtaining a degree in International Politics from the University ofToronto in 2001, Ryan realised a life long dream and traveled to China on an exploratory mission. In 2002 Ryan moved to China permanently and in 2004 Ryan became a regular contributor to the New York Times. In 2009 Ryan was listed by PDN Magazine as one of the 30 emerging photographers in the world. In 2010 Ryan began working full time on television and documentary film production and has produced and presented several large multi-episode television series for major broadcasters in the USA, Canada, UK, Asia, CHINA and continental Europe.
