MONKS

Photographs of young buddist monks of the Tawang monastery, Arunachal Pradesh in India. 2009

I've been given permission to take photographs during the morning ritual in Tawang monastery. Legend had is that the founder was led by a horse to the spot were the monestery would be built eventually. The full name of the monastery is therefore Celestral Paradise of the Devine Site chosen by a horse. With the first rays of light of dawn and the reflection on the wall, the space bathed in red light - a deep meditative atmosphere.
