Photographer's Note

Lugu Hu (Lugu Lake) is on the border of Yunnan and Sichuan Provinces in southwest China. This is the home to a number of Chinese minorities, including the Mosuo and Pumi people.

Both of these groups of people have a very interesting history and culture; the Pumi are known for their long traceable migration path, and the Mosuo for their matriarchal society and "walking marriage" custom. (Have fun researching this on the web.)

We spent a few nights in the village of Luoshui, and had a chance to explore the surrounding area. There is a huge amount of construction happening in the village, as the Chinese government is investing to make the shores of Lugu Lake a tourist destination. One can not help wonder what the fate of these unusual cultures will be.
