…light plays with form, in the matrix of mystery,exploring the interplay, as it happens – wherever I am…
that’s it – peace | love

Captivating, his beautiful eyes are looking straight into your soul, wonderful :)
thanks DarkStars, I was very fortunate as he rarely will look directly into a lens…

this is simply a breathtaking portrait!! II saw a documentary about him!! An amazing man.
thanks Pip, I am indeed very forunate to know him,a s well as get this, a set of 7, and use it with his blessing and knowledge, an astounding young man, indeed, the future of Tibet is very much starting to look like it will ride on his shoulders…
Beautiful, rich colours, you captured the gentleness here!!
thank you Liz. I’m biased, but friends say it’s the best portrait they’ve seen of him . the red paint under the ceilings is always horribly challenging to work with in india. this was HH 19th birthday, so, um, 6 years ago…
indeed, thanks for checking out my work….
many thanks to the anonymous recipient of these beautiful natural images of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Orgyen Thinley Dorje.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them, these images are reproduced with the personal blessings and permission of His Holiness.
