Save Tibet Photography Exhibit
The mission of the new Tibetan Center to raise public awareness is achieved in part though the photo display in the foyer. The monasteries in the images have been destroyed…part of a Chinese purging of 6000 of 6200 such institutions over the last half century. The Potola Palace in Lhasa, home of the Dalai Lamas for eons, is empty now.
Photographs of Tibetan uprisings and charts showing the ways in which Chinese occupiers search published photos and websites to arrest protesters. Pictures of the Tibetan capital in exile, Dharamsala, and the frostbite injuries suffered by refugees who make the trek over 17,000 foot high mountain passes to escape their occupied homeland.
