In this beautiful but disquieting portrait of both the splendour and ruin that mark contemporary Tibet, award-winning photo-journalist Steve Lehman travels beyond the timeless temples to uncover a different Tibet - one of lumberyards, uranium mines, brothels, discos, demolished temples and burned-out police stations. Documented over a ten-year period, these thoughtful and empathic photos are laced with Tibetan ephemera, maps, propaganda, religious iconography and interviews, making real the grave beauty of a culture torn by political conflict. 35 b/w and 90 colour photos.
