I do love a bit of a storm in a teacup, especially when it gets the photography world a little bit ignited. This story definitely fits the bill, with salacious references to faking images, fabricating stories, misleading some of the world’s biggest publications, and even accusations of impersonation. Naturally, I am intrigued.
This last month, a photographer named Kittiya Pawlowski (Surely the name should have been a clue?) published some breathtaking images of a snow leopard wandering through the Himalayas. And not just any old Himalayas, but none other than Everest. Yes, one of the world’s rarest and most elusive large cats just happened to stroll in front of the lens of an otherwise unknown photographer in the world’s most remote location. It sounds too good to be true.
