Several of the photographs are of Ladakh in the heart of the Himalayas, close to the Tibetan border, and show aspects of life in two Buddhist nunneries where I had the rare opportunity to live and teach.
Diane Arbus wrote that 'a photograph flatters time at the same instant and in the same way as it flatters space'. It elevates and preserves a moment and a place and gives the viewer the opportunity to go deeper into that moment. My intention is modest:- I hope these photographs inspire a Second Glance. What you find there - a story, a pattern, art, uncertainty, humanity - is up to you.
