Announcement    This shop is dedicated to support Tibetan Nuns Project in selling Fine Art Prints and postcards.
50% of the sales of all the articles sold here are going to Tibetan Nuns Project.

The Tibetan Nuns Project was founded more than 20 years ago in order to provide Tibetan nuns in India with a high quality education and humanitarian help. The main goal of the TNP is to enable nuns to make a living based on their schooling, to develop their capacities and to establish projects that will generate revenues. Additionally, it is supposed to help women to gain more recognition inside Buddhism itself.

On August 14 2014, a moving exhibition of my photographs "Tibetan Nuns - Resistance and Compassion" opened at the Museum für Völkerkunde in Hamburg, Germany. The exhibition will run until next February. i'm offering 50% of the sales of all these articles here to Tibetan Nuns Project.

“We must insist on education for all. Women must be much more involved in our societies and take part in the building of a more peaceful, less violent world in which people help one another.” Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama

Pigment prints of museum quality are realized by the author on Hahnemühle Fine Art Pearl paper guaranteeing the best conservation of your image. Other options are available, like aluminium framed prints, shadow box frame and prints with acrylic mounting.

Here you will find a interview on my collaboration with Tibetan Nuns Project:

He belongs to a humanist tradition and works on personal subjects, mixing both Man and the Sacred. Rituals, women and their universe holding an important place in his photos.

Since 2008, he has been closely interested in the lives of the Tibetan nuns in exile. He started this work in five nunneries near Dharamsala and he goes further on meeting former political prisoners-nuns who were granted shelter in the western world.
