Grasslands of Eastern Tibet: Nomads, Festivals, Monasteries
Photographs by Barbara Paul
July – September 2007.
Opening reception: Thursday, September 6th, 6-8 P.M.
This photo exhibit illustrates the unique lifestyle of Amdo nomads of Eastern Tibet. Set in the high landscape of the Tibetan Plateau these images show the joy the nomads experience at summer festivals and in their daily and religious life. Ms. Paul photographs people living in remote regions of Asia and Africa. She is attracted by their ethnic dress, tribal and religious customs, festivals and daily way of life. She is always reminded that despite cultural differences, all people desire friendship and have similar hopes and aspirations. In 2005, Paul’s photo served as the cover for the Tibet House Annual Benefit Concert invitation. Her recent exhibits include “Ethiopia: Religious Pageantry and Tribal Traditions” at the Thomas J. Walsh Gallery at the Quick Center at Fairfield University, “Tribal Papua New Guinea” at the Rye Library, among others. Her photos have also been featured at Gallery Vietnam in New York. Upcoming exhibits include Samburu warrior life at the Rye Library in Rye, N.Y. (November, 2007) and photos of Mongolia at the Ridgefield (CT) Library in early 2008.
