Beyond the Smog: Grassroots Conservation in China’s Hengduan Mountains Kyle Obermann is a Mandarin and English speaking environmental photographer based in China. His work connects China’s rapidly growing adventure sports industry and environmental movement by focusing on the role of people in nature and arguing that meaningful exploration needs to be conservation-focused. Kyle is currently spending a year inside western China’s Hengduan Mountains to document grassroots conservation communities protecting China’s last pieces of precious backcountry. His project is sponsored by The North Face and WildChina Travel, and his writing and photography have been published with Conservation International, Sixthtone, Sidetracked Magazine, Pengpai News, and more.
