The Tibetans is the first of its kind: a beautiful but disquieting portrait of both the splendor and ruin that mark contemporary Tibet. Award-winning photojournalist Steve Lehman travels beyond the mountain vistas and timeless temples to uncover a different Tibet–a Tibet of lumberyards and uranium mines, of brothels and discos, of demolished temples and burned-out police stations. Documented over a ten-year period, Lehman’s thoughtful and empathic photographs make real the grave beauty of this culture torn by political conflict. The Tibetans won the National Press Photographers Association Book of the Year Award, and was accompanied by a major photography exhibit at Newseum venues in New York, San Francisco, and Washington, DC.
