Photography Exhibition
At the Fowler Museum on the UCLA campus:
Visions of Buddhist Life
March 7, 2004 to May 30, 2004

Don Farber's acclaimed photographs provide a spectacular view of the beauty and diversity of Buddhist communities around the world. Since 1977, Farber has taken photographs in eight Asian countries and the United States. This exhibition of forty-two images from those travels — including colorful rituals from Tibetan communities, magnificent architectural scenes, revealing portraits of spiritual leaders and ordinary practitioners, and a beautiful black-and-white series of Japanese monastic life — demonstrates a virtuosity that comes from Farber’s keen eye and intimate knowledge of Buddhism.
