Item description for Tibet: Land of Exile by Patricio Estay &...
Patricio Estay has dedicated six years of his photographic work to various aspects of Tibet. This book captures his many subjects, including the Dalai Lama; the Tibetan population in exile; the school for refugee children created by Jetsun Pema, sister of His Holiness; the young exiled monks who have found a new home in the monasteries of Dharamsala; and the pilgrims who come to celebrate the holiday of Losar, the Tibetan New Year. The first part of the book presents glorious black and white photographs of beautiful spiritual images. In contrast, the second part features full-color photographs of the hard, gritty reality of modern-day Tibet.
Patricio Estay (born in Chile, 1953) was forced into political exile in 1973, seeking refuge in Brazil. During this period he completed projects on a series of social issues, with a special focus on the people living in the Favelas. In 1981, he moved to France where he started a prolific career in photography. His photographs appeared in such publications as Le Figaro Magazine, Libération, as well as Stern and Newsweek.
