Faces from Tibet



YAMA 8
LHASA, TIBET

Yama came with her parents and three sisters on a 6 week pilgrimage to the Jokhang Temple in Lhasa from the province of Kham. “Yama helped carry our 10 month old daughter much of the way.” Her father said. “We noticed very early that she was born with the true spirit of wanting to help others.”
(taken from "Phil Borges: people of indigenous cultures")

If ever there was sheer beauty captured in human's face, these pictures are as good as it gets. Go quickly over to this site. I hope there is more to follow with the new website under construction

You are right. That guy is good. And, lucky for me, he's right here in Seattle.

I'd say he's more than good. This for me is what portrait photography is about: showing the essence of the man or woman in front of your lens. If you run into him, don't forget to mention he has a big admirer !
