Artist's Description

This woman tends the butter lamps at the Jokhang Temple, Lhasa, Tibet 2008.

Peering through a small window I saw this woman surrounded by butter lamps. She stopped for only a split second and looked directly at me before continuing with her work – so no time to adjust the camera settings. The room is lit almost entirely by the light of the butter lamps.

Taken with natural light – no fill-in flash.

Canon EOS 5D, 70-200 f2.8 IS lens
