Description
 
From a little-known mysterious enclave to a country caught in the maelstrom of change, Tibet is a powerful 21st century symbol for the struggle for independence. Since the 14th Dalai Lama fled to India in 1959, inspiring some 100,000 of his countrymen to follow suit, a new Tibet has emerged in exile. Essential national institutions have been rebuilt and religious teaching preserved. Today, more than half a century after the Dalai Lama set foot on Indian soil, the impassioned call for freedom by the leader and his proud people has never been clearer. The internationally acclaimed Magnum photographer Raghu Rai has compiled a unique photo essay on the Tibetan refugees and their leader in Dharamsala, India. His photographs show the vibrance and continuity of the endangered Tibetan community, and communicate its importance to world culture.
