"Ashok Dilwali, who has been trekking and travelling in the Himalayas many decades, admittedly captures the spirit of these great mountains in his photographs." – Sir Chirs Bonington, the British Mountaineer
A renowned photo-artist of the lofty Himalayas, Ashok Dilwali has travelled widely in Europe and USA and has won international awards and acclaim for his work.
He started as a portraiture and commercial photographer in 1977. It was in 1979 that he first ventured into Himalaya and got attracted in a very big way.
Ashok Dilwali’s each picture of Himachal speaks volumes about the land. Naturally, there was the quest to publish them as a book. But it ended up not just as one, but twenty three titles so far… And two more on their way.
He has virtually worked on all formats and handled most equipment including Nikon, Hassleblad, Linhof, Mamiya and Fujica. But his biggest achievement in life has been to bring the grandeur of the Himalayas to millions of homes and offices.
