Item description for Ladakh by Prabir C. Purkayastha...

Ladakh Prabir Purkayastha

In this gorgeous visual tapestry, a gifted photographer shares his spiritual journey through a landscape at once unforgiving and nurturing.

Nestled among the world's highest mountains lies Ladakh, a remote region of Northern India known for its rugged beauty. For more than a decade, Prabir Purkayastha has made pilgrimages to this bastion of Tibetan culture, bringing back with him the photographs that comprise this book. Gold-tinted panoramic vistas of snow-blanketed fields seem to glow from within, while prayer flags fluttering against a cerulean sky appear to leap off the page. Portraits of wizened faces alternate with centuries-old statues. Ladakh is more than a feast for the eyes, as Purkayastha's text also feeds the soul, narrating his work with searching prose. "There's a place I have found where mortal words have no meaning," writes Purkayastha, "and every awakening is the beginning of another dream." As provocative as it is meditative, Ladakh is a unique journey that deepens with the turning of each page.

Prabir Purkayastha's work has been exhibited internationally, and in 2002 he was awarded the Habitat Award for Best Photography Exhibition.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ladakh?

Stunningly beautiful book  Jun 5, 2008
I bought this for my husband as a one year anniversary as we both are huge fans of Ladakh, especially after trekking there last Summer. The photography is stunning and the text to go along is wonderful and meaningful. This is an art book, one that we will always love going back to and look at. A must have for lovers of big beautiful books.
