Artist's Description

Taken at Lugu Lake, nestled in the Himalayas in China’s Yunnan province. The Mosuo people live in various villages scattered around Lugu Lake and are considered one of the last matriarchial cultures in the world.

They are famous for their culture practice of the “walking marriage” (or as they call it literally “friend marriage”) where a man can visit a girl at night and if she likes him will sleep with him; but he must leave by morning. If the girl has a child s/he will be raised fatherless by her and her family. Apparently the real father may be referred to only as “uncle” by the child.
