Czech journalist Karel Beba was a member of an international group of journalists, who in 1955 accepted invitation of the People’s Republic of China to visit Tibet. The main aim of their visit was to convince the world about legitimacy of „peaceful liberation“ of Tibet, which was supposed to bring new, better order. Karel Beba saw Tibetan society of the 50th as „middle age between us“, as an anachronism to be overcome. His photographs captured „mysterious“ world at the eve of destruction.
