Magni­ficent and mys­te­rious, Tibet has been a source of fasci­na­ti­on for out­si­ders for cen­tu­ries, and its grand land­s­capes and vibrant cul­tu­re have espe­ci­al­ly cap­ti­va­ted pho­to­graph­ers. But the coun­try is both geo­gra­phi­cal­ly and poli­ti­cal­ly chal­len­ging, and access from the out­side has never been easy.

With this book, Cla­re Har­ris offers the first his­to­ri­cal sur­vey of pho­to­gra­phy in Tibet and the Hima­la­yas, tel­ling the intri­guing sto­ries of both Tibe­tans and for­eig­ners who have attemp­ted to docu­ment the regi­on s won­ders on film.

Har­ris com­bi­nes exten­si­ve rese­arch in muse­ums and archi­ves with her own fieldwork in Tibe­tan com­mu­nities to pre­sent mate­ri­als that have never been exami­ned befo­re inclu­ding the ear­liest known pho­to­graph taken in Tibet, dating to 1863. She looks at the expe­ri­men­tal came­ra-work of Tibe­tan monks inclu­ding the thir­te­enth Dalai Lama and the crea­ti­ons of con­tem­pora­ry Tibe­tan pho­to­graph­ers and artists.

With every image she explo­res the com­plex reli­gious, poli­ti­cal, and cul­tu­ral cli­ma­te in which it was pro­du­ced. Stun­nin­gly illus­tra­ted, this book will appeal to anyo­ne inte­rested in the dra­ma­tic histo­ry of Tibet sin­ce the mid-nine­teenth cen­tu­ry and its uni­que ent­an­gle­ments with aes­thetics and modernity.
