Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf Photography First Part

 

Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf (1909 Vienna - 1995 London) was an Austrian ethnologist. He spent about forty years of his life doing fieldwork in Northeast India and in the central region of what is now the state of Andhra Pradesh and in Nepal. In 1953, when the Kingdom of Nepal opened to the outside world, Cristoph didn't want to lose the opportunity to visit the then little-known country and became the first foreigner who was able to do research among the peoples of Nepal.

These very important pictures presented here, were taken during his journey in the Western Nepal in 1966 and 1972...

All these Pictures are the property of the SCHOOL OF ORIENTAL AND AFRICAN STUDIES in London. here's the address of the website : http://digital.info.soas.ac.uk/cgi/c
