If you are tired of reality television shows about heiresses, this book is the perfect foil to the American consumerist lifestyle. Gorgeous colors, interesting faces, and some incredible photos of pilgrims prostrating themselves all the way to Lhasa (which takes 2 years!). This is not just a pretty picture book though. There is fear in the eyes of most of the subjects of the street portraits, which I am not sure is indicative of life in Tibet, or the photographer's intrusion in sacred acts.
Beautiful haunting pictures. The photographer is a genius.
