In pictures: Tibetan nomads

Jigme is the head of an ethnic Tibetan family based in Sichuan province, western China.

He and his family move camp throughout the year, in order to take advantage of the changing resources. They spend up to two months in one place.

Approximately 40% of the ethnic Tibetan population is nomadic or semi-nomadic.
