To be published at the end of July 2014 by the University Press of Kentucky, “Land of Pure Vision: The Sacred Geography of Tibet and the Himalaya” by David Zurick is a volume of photographs of sacred sites from all over the Himalayan region.
From the University Press of Kentucky website:
In Land of Pure Vision, David Zurick draws from his thirty-five years of experience as a geographer, photographer, and explorer of the Himalaya, combining scholarship and art to capture divine landscapes undergoing profound change. The stunning photographs featured in this volume cover the full geographical reach of the region, from the high plateaus of the western Himalaya to the rugged gorges of Tibet’s eastern borderlands, from the icy summits of the north to the subtropical southern foothills. Some sites exist in isolation, with intact natural environments and cultural monuments. Others display the tension between the ancient, sacred character of a place and the indifferent course of the modern world.
