Rhythm of Peace And Power, Drepung Monastery, Lhasa, Tibet
Purists may have an issue with using an 8 second exposure on a people shot however sometimes breaking the ‘rules’ pays off. In Drepung monastery in Lhasa, Tibet this was one such case when it paid off for me as I purposely captured the movement and a little of the eternal mantra of these monks.
When I looked at the film many months after taking the image I was amazed to see that some of the monks were actually sharp. I have always loved this photograph.
