Description

Lyrical, evocative color landscapes, still lifes, interiors and portraits invite the reader into a Buddhist world. <P>To the Light opens with a photograph of a red-robed monk, profiled in the cameo of a monastery window. Inviting the reader to accompany her, an elderly Nepali woman, standing backlit in a gompa doorway, gazes out from the following page. As the journey unfolds, a series of landscapes, still lifes, interiors and portraits evoke a spiritual as well as geographical context. Gently, Sharon Collins' luminous, serene images lead the reader into a world of contemplation and simplicity. Seventy-four full page color photographs of Buddhist Asia, paired with short, key paragraphs from sacred texts, transform the intangible into the tangible. <P>Far beyond being a mere straightforward narrative of Buddhism, To the Light is an elegant exploration of Tibet, Ladakh, Nepal, China, Thailand, Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam by an expert photographer with an eye for images that depict the organic nature of Buddhism as a way of life. <P>To the Light reaches out to those who practice Buddhism and those intrigued by it, to actual and armchair travelers and to aficionados of fine photography. <P>Seventy-four full page color photographs.
