In the third part of our series My Return to Tibet , Tibetan broadcaster Palden Gyal shares photos of the faces of Tibet. From the weathered elderly to young children, they illustrate the diverse and unique nature of Tibetan culture.

Palden knows few of the people pictured here but regards their faces as telling a story.
