Overview

Unprecedented in scope and unique in its vision, Himalayan Odyssey is unlike any previous photography book on this subject.

Over the course of a decade, David Samuel Robbins trekked more than two thousand miles through Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and north India, creating an intimate, sensitive, and deeply personal portrait of Himalayan landscape and culture.

Himalayan Odyssey is a journey into a spiritual way of life far removed from the modern world. It is also a documentary of remarkable depth and insight, and a poignant record of fragile cultures in transition.

What People Are Saying

Martin Scorsese
These extraordinary photographs cut through the notion of the exotic, mysterious East to reveal the reality of the Himalayan landscape and the humanity of its inhabitants. Robbins has stripped nature down to its basic elements, and makes his subjects accessible as human beings, not just quaint faces in a remote land. This is a collection of unique images that expands our perceptions of the world.
Pico Iyer
...what stirs me in these images is that they feel not like the shiny discoveries of some tourist, but like the gnarled truths of the resident....Robbins seems to have addressed the spirits and hardships of these far-off kingdoms with an anthropologist’s respect and attention, so that one feels, almost, as if one’s seeing them from the inside out.
Peter Matthiesen
Robbins’ beautiful Himalayan work is suffused with grit and smoke and air and mountain light, just as it should be. Wonderful! It made me homesick.

    This is a book to Treasure

    Turning the pages of this book is like taking a journey of your own. Each image draws you further away from from your own world and into a very different one. The photographs are both beautiful and strange, a document of an exotic place and a fine art piece. This is obviously a project that has taken both time and commitment to create. The caliber of the photographs is exceptional and rare.

    Above and Beyond

    It is clear that David Robbins reveals artistic intellegence surpassed only by the beauty of his subject matter. As I turn through the pages I see metaphore after metaphore expressed by horses as mountains, a mother and child as a great wind, a man bearing a burden to the elevations as great slices of frozen rock jutt upward toward the sky. These metaphores call to us and serve as reminders of endurance, of simplicity, and all that is precious. In the pages of this book, your imagination can be unlocked and your thirst for understanding and compassion unbridled. It is important, especially in this time, to remember the beauty of the human spirit, the beauty of the earth and how they can fit together.

    The best book of its type I've ever seen

    There are so many photo books on the Himalaya - and they all start to seem the same after a while. This book is not really 'travel photography' - it's more a fine-art and impressionistic perspective on Tibet, Nepal, etc...the pictures are lyrical and seem very personal. I also really enjoyed Pico Iyer's essay. If I could only own one photography book on the Himalaya, this would be it !

    Exceptional Achievement in Travel Photography

    This is the most compelling, revealing, transporting account of a Himalayan experience I have seen and was obviously a labor of love for a truly devoted artist. It would seem nearly impossible, verbally or visually, to convey the essence of such a spiritual and awe inspiring place. David Robbins has made this sense of wonder accessible if not unavoidable to all who see this work.
