Tibet – Faces of a Hidden Land
took the viewer into a world which, despite being so full of gentleness, was not spared from the horrors of chinese invasion. The photos were taken on a several monthes long journey which led from China through Tibet and Nepal all the ways to the former west of Tibet, Ladakh. These versatile images reflect the endless width of the Himalaya and tibetan highlands, accompany to the deeply religious rituals of the faithful, they make the terrors of occupation visible but also the beauty, power and happiness of the people inhabiting the highest region of our world. It's a political, but also emotional and aesthetical reign of pictures, which not only wants to shake you up but is also quite pleasant. Mystical Shangri La is shown in all its facettes; sadly a lot of the photographs are historical documents today since about 80 % of the buildings shown no longer exist today. Defying the disastrous conditions and the explosive political situation, tibetan people still inherit a kindness which remains unbroken and the former beauty of this hidden and once unreachable country lives on in these pictures. The viewer starts a journey through a great buddhistic world, which is not yet lost completely to this day.
