Year of the Black Snake!

Greetings From Cornell Capa’s first trip to China. . .


Sunday, February 10  is Chinese New Year or Spring Festival.

The above photograph of a mysteriously disguised Cornell Capa is from his first trip to China. The identity of his companion in this image is as yet unknown. . .

Tibetan New Year (aka Losar Festival) is the most important festival throughout Tibet, just like the Spring Festival for the Chinese.  The Tibetan New Year 2013 will fall on Feb 11, 2013.
