Arles, France

Richard Petit shot "Cheap Land" over several years, a series of large format photographs of snowy mountains, an anxious look at the landscape confronting the banal and the sublime. These pictures have been often exhibited in galleries or festivals for contemporary photography. I also repeatedly traveled to India, including Ladakh, called by the Indians "Little Tibet". The last time it was to teach photography to students of the TCV in Mac Leod Ganj.
