Photographer's Note

Preparing breakfast. Hemis-Shukpachu, Ladakh.

This is TT's wife rolling out the chappattis for breakfast - delicious with some Ladakhi apricot jam.
The Ladakhi kitchen is the focal point for the household, a place to eat but also a place to relax and to socialise. They're always full of pots, pans and interesting clutter, but the most impressive sight is always the enormous solid-fuel stove that took pride of place in every kitchen that I saw.
The stoves are made locally, and really are works of art in black cast iron with intricate decorations. If I had a house I'd get one shipped over immediately!
