McLeod Ganj Walk

I’ve been in McLeod Ganj longer than I planned – going on two weeks now.  A couple weeks ago China closed Tibet to foreigners, so I decided that this is a good place to photograph at least half of the Tibet-China issue.  Among Tibetans here there is a huge range of emotions about the Tibetan independence/autonomy issue here.  Some Tibetans are still fearful for their families back in Tibet.  Some are actually here on passports from China.  Some are former political prisoners.  Some were born here.

Here’s a little video of a walk through McLeod Ganj and more…



I am experimenting with how to produce works of Tibetan refugees who want their identity kept secret, because of fear for their families back in Tibet.

Fear for Family
