In 1997, internationally acclaimed photographer Ulli Steltzer traveled to Lijiang, China, to document the minority people and landscapes now designated a United Nations World Heritage Site. Her compelling black-and-white photographs visually preserve the arts and lifestyles of the distinct and fragile culture of this area, which has since become a major tourist attraction. The Canadian Society for Asian Arts presents a selection of these insightful photographs through the month of October.
