Ashok Dilwali’s photographs of the Himalayas recapture the magic and majesty of Roerich’s genius. Following the same arduous path of the Russian master, he evokes the splendour and spirit of these awe-inspiring mountains by photographing the luminous landscapes that Roerich painted. Enduring harsh weather and conditions, he charts a love affair with Tibet, Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, among others.

Ashok Dilwali magically brings snow-clad mountains and lovely valleys into our homes. He, undoubtedly, reigns supreme in mountain photography. He has mastered the art of capturing the exact mood at appropriate angles with his lens and presents the Himalayas, its people and places in a form and style never seen before. Dilwali won two gold medals in the International Photography Competitions in Austria (2005 and 2006). He also received the third prize in a photography competition held in the USA in 2002. This is his 25th publication.
