Location: Northern Areas of Pakistan, 2008
Diamer, also known as Nanga Parbat, is the 9th highest mountain in the world. It is the westernmost major peak of the Himalayan mountain range.
I visited Nanga Parbat from Fairy Meadow, which is located on the foot of the mountain along its glacier. The accommodation I stayed in was lucky enough to have its window directly facing the summit. I got up really early in the morning to catch the sunrise and it was one of the best experiences I have had. The light started off as you can see in the photograph - soft and gentle. Only a few minutes later, the entire massif was brightly lit as if it was on fire. The impressive light show was accompanied by the sound of the constant moving glacier, with the occasion of avalanches which I could see so clearly from where I stood.
That was how close I was to the mountain. It was truly the experience of a lifetime.

Born in Malaysia, I was bitten by the travel bug at a young age. My interest in exploring off the beaten tracks has led me to places such as Tibet, Iran, and Pakistan. While it’s nice to see new places, I have enjoyed the cultural experience of traveling more. I would bring home a piece of local culture from every place I visit, mainly in the form of wall art.
Maybe you have been to places I have photographed, or seen them elsewhere. I hope, through my work, I can bring a piece of memory or add an artistic touch to your living space.
