Reviews

" Photography and Tibet "is an invaluable introduction to the multiple ways that Tibet has been depicted through photography. I hope this book will enable the general public to have an idea of the rich and ancient Buddhist culture of Tibet, with its natural heritage of nonviolence and compassion, which has the potential to benefit humanity at large. I therefore welcome this book. --The Dalai Lama" "This expansive, intricate, and virtuosic account offers a radical rethinking of photography's relationship with Tibet. Rejecting orientalist narratives of that relationship, Harris addresses the entangled political and cultural dynamics of the medium, from the colonial period to the twenty-first century, through which Tibetan culture has been understood and understands itself."--Elizabeth Edwards, Photographic History Research Centre, De Monfort University "A wonderful survey-cum-detective story about the multiple locations of Tibet, and the role of the camera in making them visible. We come to understand the heavy burden of representation in this context, and the remarkable tenacity of 'aura' when the photograph attempts to suture the wounds of exile. This a compelling and authoritative account, filled with important new materials and vivid connections, that takes us to the heart of practices caught in the crossfire of different visions of Tibet."--Christopher Pinney, professor of anthropology and visual culture, University College London "Photography and Tibet is an invaluable introduction to the multiple ways that Tibet has been depicted through photography.
