part of a set of images from a 2 week pilgrimage shoot

…..His Holiness traveled to this remote Himalayan valley in 2004, to give teachings, empowerments, and consecrate the Urgyen Sanag Choeling Monastery in Kungri.
I very fortunately was given the opportunity and permission to photograph his visit over 10 days to 4 villages.
The Spiti / Lahaul and Pin Valleys are accessible only in the summer months, via the 4550m Kunzum Pass, in these incredible, high altitude, arid valleys the simplicity and humility of the tribal peoples is astounding and very refreshing…

…light plays with form,
in the matrix of mystery,
exploring the interplay,
as it happens – wherever I am…

that’s it – peace | love
