A new exhibition, Infinite light: a photographic meditation on Tibet, with photographs by Marissa Roth FRGS, will be available for Fellows and Members to view in the Director’s Gallery from next Tuesday, 4 April.
The images, taken in 2007 and 2010 with Kodachrome film, reflect Marissa’s inner and outer journeys to this vast land and are a very personal impressionistic view of what it feels like to be in Tibet. During these journeys, Marissa was drawn to the themes of motion and stillness, where layers of visual information suffused with rich hues blended into almost transcendent moments, inspiring her to create photographs that evoke the essence of Tibetan Buddhism.
The exhibition will be open Monday to Friday, 10.00am-5.00pm, until Tuesday 30 May. Guests to our Monday night lectures are also welcome to visit the exhibition on Monday evenings before the lecture begins, including on Monday 3 April.
