Description
:
Bhutan: Through the Lens of the King transports us to one of the most vibrant, ancient, and peaceful cultures of the world. Bhutan’s vast and stunning landscape, beautiful people, rich wildlife, and the mystical and dynamic culture are sensitively captured through the eyes of the photographer, His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck. The collection of over 160 striking photographs of rural life, isolated communities, ancient fortresses, monasteries, and Buddhist traditions reflects the socio-cultural, religious, and political life of the remote Himalayan kingdom. There are photos that also reveal the deeply affectionate and caring relationship of His Majesty with his people. Many of the photographs were taken by His Majesty when travelling on foot for days, which he often does to reach out and engage with his people. The brilliant visuals not only depict the King’s care and concern for, and connect with his people but also his pride and admiration for his country, countrymen, and culture. The images also endearingly capture the arrival of the twenty-first century to Bhutan. The engaging essays by two of India’s most prominent writers narrate a fascinating tale about the King and his Kingdom. This book will impress and please any reader interested in travel, photography, and/or Himalayan culture.
