Tibet - Fragile Prayers

Tibet is fast becoming a network of concrete highways, hydroelectric dams, and vast mining projects under China’s ambitious development agenda. But in the remote valleys beyond Lhasa, a few ancient villages and monasteries preserve an aura of serenity, and practice the study of compassion that is at the core of the Tibetan way of life. The plight of Tibetans is controversial yet real, as industrialisation and politics continue to impact this part of the world. This series from 2001 documents some of the remaining Tibetan culture so that more might be done to respect and preserve it. This collection has appeared at the School for Oriental and Asian Studies (SOAS London), the Tibet Society (University of Nottingham), the Light Gallery (London), and Castello Cennina (Tuscany) with an exhibit of 9th & 10th Century Tibetan objects. The collection has now been donated to His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
