Cultural documentary photographer fundraising work related to Tibetan refugees in northern India
and Nepal. My work includes photojournalism, English language tutoring to former political prisoners, monks/nuns and other disadvantaged locals,

I became involved in the Tibetan exile settlements of India and Nepal in autumn 2009. I helped run a small non-profit school for community members who might otherwise never have a chance to study English language and culture. Many of these students were former political prisoners who had endured unimaginable torture and had fled into exile risking life and limb.

In 2010 I returned to work with other NGOs as both English conversation teacher, social activisit and documentary photographer. In 2012, I self-published my first book related to this experience, Everyday Exile (available on Amazon, Nook etc).

My current work in the community, which is also the exile home of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, includes teaching and documentary photography of Tibetan and Himalayan culture as well as the difficulties faced by refugees here.

Monies raised will be used in different ways, including books to aid students' study, obtaining Tibetan language translation as necessary, supporting travel between locations to document stories, and for high speed mobile internet access allowing me to work from remote locations which are otherwise cut off. 

Every donation, no matter how small, is deeply appreciated, and you can be assured your money goes a long way to making a difference in these people's lives! Please share my work and ask your family, friends and social media networks to jump in!

Thank you! Tu je nang!
