An exhibition of photography by Sebastian Pearson In co

An exhibition of photography by Sebastian Pearson In collaboration with Tibet Foundation’s Buddhism in Mongolia Programme The Sacred Landscapes of Mongolia exhibition is born out of a collaboration between the Buddhism in Mongolia programme and Sebastian Pearson, with the idea of creating awareness for a country struggling to revive Buddhism at the heart of its cultural identity and raising awareness of Tibet Foundation’s unique programme there. Pearson’s photographs capture and illustrate scenes in Mongolia rarely seen before, providing a real insight in to Sacred Mongolia. The landscapes are awash with intense and dramatic colour: yaks wander past deep blue skies, a herder gallops across the Steppe in search of his flock, and sacred scarves blow in the wind. The photographs in this exhibition take the viewer along a journey in to the history of Sacred Mongolia. Buddhism has become both the catalyst and crucible of modern Mongolia’s attempts to re-establish its cultural identity. These sacred landscapes will not be around forever, but with a helping hand and a firm grip on Buddhism, they have a chance of surviving.
