Project Description

Creative and Cultural Immersion in the Kathmandu & Lhasa Valleys

with Sean Kernan & Jock Montgomery

Fall, 2012

13 days of exploration in Mandalay, Bagan, Inle Lake, Kalau, Pindaya and Yangon

Photographer Sean Kernan and I led a group of 12 photographers to the valleys of Kathmandu, Nepal and Lhasa, Tibet. Perhaps I can organize something similar for you in the future?
