The Buddhist Diaspora in India, organized by Atreyee Phukan (English) and Dominik Huber (photographer), is a photography exhibition from travels in Bihar and Sikkim, and offers a visual portal into the life and landscape of Buddhists and Buddhism in northern and north-east India. The artist gives articulation to a diverse and candid range of pilgrims and architecture in this presentation of the full-life of a people and faith His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has spent his life serving. These photographic media join with other multidisciplinary activities across the university campus as USD prepares for the visit of His Holiness on April 18.

Born in Switzerland, raised in southern Italy, a long-time resident of New York city, and now living in San Diego, Dominik Huber has spent over 20 years recording the stories of his travels through photography, combining an artist's sensitivity to the abstract and involvement with socio-cultural evolutions. His full portfolio can be viewed at www.dominikphoto.com

The exhibit will run throughout the month of April and is installed on the second floor hallway of the Institute for Peace & Justice, outside room 219. This project was made possible through generous funds from the Offices of Community Service-Learning and the Vice Provost. For more information contact Atreyee Phukan at phukana@sandiego.edu. 

The Opening Reception will be held on Monday, April 16, 2012 at 6:30pm, in KIPJ 2nd floor hallway near room 219. All are welcome!
