Photography and Tibet by Clare Harris
Slight mark on the front cover
Leading Tibetologist Clare Harris combines the results of extensive research in museums and archives with her own fieldwork in Tibetan communities to present material that has never been made public or discussed before. This includes the earliest known photographs taken in Tibet, dating to 1863, the experimental camerawork of senior Tibetan monks – including the 13th Dalai Lama – and the creations of contemporary Tibetan photographers and artists.
Part of the Exposures series. Exposures is a series of books on photography designed to explore the rich history of the medium from thematic perspectives. Each title, written by an authority in the area, presents a striking collection of c. 80 images and an engaging, accessible text that offers intriguing insights into a specific theme or subject.
