A bit of context on this next series of photos: Dharamshala, India is where the exiled government of Tibet resides. Led by the Dalai Lama, nearly 100,000 Tibetan refugees live in this northern Indian city, where they seek to maintain their traditions and culture in exile. The long journey from Tibet to India includes a grueling 28 day walk through the Himalayan mountains. Many of the refugees make this trek as children, sent by their parents in hopes of studying their language and religion in freedom. In conclusion, here’s a young Tibetan monk playing with a kitten.
I spent the day listening to my production manager try to make the DP happy with a plane ticket that cost 6000 instead of 4500 for a two day shoot. That’s more than I pay in rent for months…is this really ok? are these really priorities.
This has been hands down the craziest month of my life but it was also the most rewarding. To everyone who is a part of the Myth Project, thank you. You have changed my life.
