Remarks:Black & White Photographs and Index.
Size:140 x 210 mm
his unique work offers the reader a poetic depictionof the abyssal Himalayan city of Kathmandu: the mythical sword-shaped sacredcity of divine origin set among the shining mountains of the Himalayas; the open-air mandala studded by golden-roofedtemples; the cradle and melting pot of millenary civilisation and spiritualtradition; the mesmerising destination for generations of flower children and"dharma bums"; Asia's present-day dirty, derelict and broken mirror...Kathmandu.
A visionary katabasis, this book, enriched by a wideselection of artistic B&W photos, leads the reader through the mazes ofthis remote location, simultaneously a real venue, a sacred land and aninviolate recess of the soul: sharp shadows and piercing shouts mingle with burstsof overwhelming light and tremendous beauty.
