Fotograf Oliver Klink pochodzący z Kalifornii, spędził ostatnie 16 lat podróżując po Azji. W tym czasie odwiedził Mongolię,  Chiny, Bhutanu, Birmę i Indie. Stworzone w czerni i bieli, fotografie pokazują zanikające tradycje w Azji. Klink, który urodził się i wychował w Szwajcarii, zanim przeniósł się do USA, twierdzi, że jego celem jest uwiecznienie prostego życia, zanim przejmie go technologia.

 

Capturing it before it's gone: California-based photographer Oliver Klink has spent the past 16 years travelling across Asia to countries including Mongolia, China, Bhutan, Myanmar (above), and India before the rise of modernisation takes hold

 

 

Showered in light: Farmers are seen using traditional methods, with oxen used instead of machinery 

 

Sacred places: Klink called this image, taken in 2014 while in Myanmar, 'God's Rays' - he said it was made even more poignant after an earthquake struck in 2016 and destroyed countless old temples

 

Youth of today: Two young children take part in a ceremonial procession, they are seen wearing traditional feathered headdresses and embellished outfits as they are paraded through the streets

 

Lost in translation: Klink says that unfortunately he doesn't speak all of the local languages so he often has to find a guide who can speak to subjects for him. Above, a traditional stepwell in India

 

Under the surface: Klink said the biggest challenge is finding places that haven't already succumb to modernisation

 

 

 

 

 

 

Enduring love: A smartly dressed man and woman pose together in a street, demonstrating a heart-warming bond

 

Laundry day: An elderly woman looks out as a piece of clothing dries on her washing line and a bamboo mop is put out to air

 

The talented photographer revealed he is always travelling to new places and in January 2017 he visited his 100th country

 

A family sit by a wood burning stove to keep warm, pieces of meat can be seen hanging from the ceiling and a kettle is sat to boil - the images strikes a stark contrast to Western-style kitchens
