The Tibet Project

A series of photographs which document extensive travels in Tibet and the Tibetan Buddhist world between 1987 and 1997. They include images taken in West Tibet (Mount Kailas), central and East Tibet, Mongolia (in mid winter), the Tibetan exile community in north and south India, and Ladakh. The photographs were taken on a Nikon F3 using 35mm Fujichrome/Ektachrome film.

An introduction written for the 1997 Sarjeant Gallery (New Zealand) exhibition of these photographs can be found on this link - “Tibet - a Living Culture”
