Homage to the HimalayasISBN: 0810959135;
Those who believe an unfathomable experiential chasm exists between the West and the East would do well to consult Olivier FA¶llmi's photographs. In this remarkable collection, FA¶llmi demonstrates that the distance between cultures, no matter how great hysically, is one of perception only. Once the official photographer of the Dalai Lama, FA¶llmi has been training his lens on the Himalayas for more than 25 years. Here he captures the essence of the region and its people as no one else could-its dizzyingpeaks, treacherous climate, and spiritual serenity. Images of Buddhist holy places are counterposed with portraits of ordinary people, their ruddy faces worn to leather by snow and wind. This is a breathtaking collection by a great artist whose subject isnothing less than our shared humanity.
