This is a collection of beautiful, evocative photographs that both shock and entertain, amounting to an extraordinary portrait of Tibet. Patricio Estay has dedicated six years of his photographic work to various aspects of Tibet. This book captures his many subjects, including the Dalai Lama; the Tibetan population in exile; the school for refugee children created by Jetsun Pema, sister of His Holiness; the young exiled monks who have found a new home in the monasteries of Dharamsala; and the pilgrims who come to celebrate the holiday of Losar, the Tibetan New Year. The first part of the book presents glorious black and white photographs of beautiful spiritual images. In contrast, the second part features full colour photographs of the hard, gritty reality of modern day Tibet.
