The Forty Colours Photography Project, which includes experiences of worldtraveler photographers, continues with the exhibition of its 12th color - Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan.
Starting from Nepal's capital city Katmandu, where the Hindu and Tibetan cultures mingle, the journey continues to Bhutan and then to Tibet, also known as the "roof of the world." Selected photos of this journey are exhibited until Aug. 23 at the Dünyanın Renkleri (Colors of the World) Gallery in Taksim.
In the 40 Colours Photography Project, each country of the region is represented by a color and within the frame of the project, 40 journeys will take place. Up to this point, photos from India, Jordan-Israel, Vietnam- Cambodia, Venice, Kenya-Tanzania, Burma, North Vietnam-Yunnan, Cuba, Paris, Peru-Bolivia and Mongolia were displayed. The latest exhibition of the photographers belongs to Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan journeys.
In this journey, the photographers traveled into the heart of the Himalayas. Photos from Nepal's chaotic capital city Katmandu, the Kingdom in the Clouds Bhutan and Tibet with unchanging, resisting cultures are displayed at the exhibition.
The exhibition has calm monasteries, stupas and sceneries reaching out to eternal depths as well as the Festival of Thimphu Tshechu that is held in Bhutan, the country of happy people, annually.
The photos of the region show traces of how people's lives intertwine with Buddhism. The "Nepal-Tibet-Bhutan" Exhibition brings stories of people and sceneries from one of the world's highest peaks to Istanbul, at the Dünyanın Renkleri Gallery until Aug. 23.
