Below are images of Buddhas I photographed during one of my journeys in Asia, as well as the luminous mandalas that were created from them. I am currently creating a collection of similar diptychs (featuring a Buddha and its resulting mandala) from photographs taken at sacred sites in China, Tibet, Nepal and Indonesia. I hope to offer them to you in book form in late 2023.
