Tibetan Buddhist Monks of the Gelugpa Order (Yellow Hat Sect) accompany a thangka (painting of Buddha) through the streets of Xiahe, Gansu Province, China, during the Monlam Festival at the Labrang Monastery. Monks work on the painting for the year preceding the festival and then display it on a nearby hillside for about an hour.

Two of my photos have been selected for a juried show at the Vermont Photo Space called “Scene on the Street” (if you’re viewing this post after the exhibition, the link may no longer point to the right place). The juror for the exhibition is Ed Kashi, a photojournalist whose work I deeply respect. The exhibition opens Dec. 13, 2010, but the reception will be on Dec. 19, 2010 at 3pm. Vermont Photo Space is located at 12 Main St., Essex Junction, Vermont.
There are a couple of friends in the exhibition as well. Peter McCollough will have 3 pictures on the walls, and Peter Hoffman will have 1 in the show.
