Ladakh: A Spirit of Place



January 30, 2016 - May 1, 2016



A visit to the remote region of Ladakh, on the highest plateau of

the Himalyals in Northern India, is a truly monastic experience.

In the midst of this surreal landscape, alongside the political and

militant urgencies of Kashmir, Ladakh has been recently

discovered by an increasing influx of tourists. The boom of tourism

imported modern modes of building and living which raises

concerns of traditions lost. This exhibition represents a glimpse

of the beauty of their traditions and the evidential problems brought

forth by modernization.
