'Above all this is a book of art.' VISIONS OF TIBET is a collection of stunning photographs capturing stolen moments from the travels of photographer Brian Kistler in his pilgrimage across this enigmatic country. Brian Kistler's interest in photography was prompted by a determination to document life in all the Buddhist countries of Asia while their traditional cultures experienced accelerated rates of change. During his travels in Tibet, he collected thousands of images of the country and the people that had captured both his imagination and his soul. VISIONS OF TIBET displays a captivating selection of these photographs, conveying Kistler's spiritual journey from his initial visual fascination with the mountainous landscape, through his growing familiarity with the Tibetan people to his eventual spiritual enlightenment. He became a pilgrim of art, nature, culture and landscape, documenting the holy places he visited along the way and the extraordinary Tibetan people that have overcome decades of invasion, occupation, violent revolution and colonial repression with indomitable spirit. This collection of images is a homage to this beautiful country and the spiritual life with which Kistler made a lifelong connection.
