Mountains, coal smoke and long winters – “so cold that Russian vodka freezes” blanket the cities of Mongolia in smog for several months each year. Louis Vuitton, Burberry and Armani have opened shop in this ancient land, landlocked between Russia and China. Tibetan Buddhist Lama Delgar Delka straddles urban and rural, monk and family life, and has dedicated his life to reminding his fellow Mongolians of their sacred duty to protect the natural environment of their homeland.
