The ASMP has honored me again this year with their featured artists article for my on-going series of images on the people of Bhutan and the preservation of their identity.
The body of work is titled The Sacred Treasures of Thunder Dragon and deals with the small Buddhist country of Bhutan, nestled in the Himalayan Mountains.
They have been sheltered for centuries from the outside world and now there is a rapid decline in their traditional ways due to necessary new external alliances. Our project is examining and preserving their disappearing identity.
