While visiting the Kingdom of Bhutan many times from 1991 onward, I made some deep and extremely precious friendships over the years. These resulted in discussions with several monks about a project to document the spiritual masters of this Buddhist nation. The Bhutan Masters project was established in 2022 with the goal of creating an archive of the country's great lamas, monks, nuns, yogis and hermits, and is currently in its initial phase. The photographs in this collection were taken on my first exploratory trips, accompanied by monks of the Zhung Dratshang (central monastic body), to gather information and leads about some of these masters and the environments in which they practice.

PHOTO PRINTS
Prints are on Hahnemuhle heavyweight (315 gsm) 100% archival cotton “Photo Rag Baryta” paper, using archival inks and archival spray coating. They have a 200-year life expectancy before any deterioration of the print will be observed when stored, handled, and displayed under archival conditions.

CANVAS PRINTS
What is often called “Gallery Wrap Canvas” is a fine art inkjet (Giclee) print on canvas, with printed edges to wrap around a wooden stretcher frame, like a painting. With canvas prints, your print image is still the same size, but given a "wrap effect" around the edges to account for the thickness of the stretcher. Canvas can be rolled and shipped with no effect to the print. Your local framing shop should be able to mount the canvas to stretchers at a fraction of the cost of traditional framing, making for an overall more economical way to get fine art on your wall. The canvas is printed to wrap around a 1-inch stretcher (1.5 inches on larger sizes). Specifications will be provided with your order. Feel free to contact us if you need guidance with your canvas order.
