There’s a place on earth where time stands still. A place where a reverence for nature and the Buddhist religion have preserved a kingdom that is often referred to as the world’s last Shangri-la. A mythical and medieval land hidden high away in the Himalayas–an Eden called Bhutan.
In early 2004 I was hired by Yarkay Tours to photograph Bhutan, a small country just south of Tibet and north of India, to create a 60-minute documentary for Bhutanese and American television using both film and still images. Ever since I heard of this amazing country six years earlier, my passion was to explore its land and meet its people. Somehow I felt it was my destiny to go to Bhutan and now my dream was finally going to come true!
