This journey to Pakistan has been truly an awakening for me. Although we didn’t se a snow leopard in person I know they saw me. Each day we were greeted with fresh tracks, scat and scent marking. Enough insight to create an important series of works.
This magical place is called the roof of the world for good reason. I hiked daily to 14000 feet looking out over the steep valleys , know that this elusive beast was about there, haunted my creative mind nightly. I feel this series of snow leopards will prove to be some of my best.
