The images in this exhibition, the first St. Louis showing of photography by Regina DeLuise,
were made in Bhutan during 2010 and center on the ordinary surroundings of a remarkable culture
whose history is intricately woven with Tibetan Buddhism.

About the exhibition

The images in this exhibition, taken in Thimpu, Bhutan in 2010, center on the ordinary surroundings of a culture both remarkable and mysterious (Bhutan only opened its borders in the 1950s and still strongly restricts tourism). Bhutan’s history is intricately woven with Tibetan Buddhism. There is little separation: Monks and lamas are a vibrant and integral part of the community, elders spend their days in prayer, young and old make their pilgrimage to monasteries that seem to hang from the sides of mountains. The idea of devotion in every aspect of one’s life is not exotic or unrealistic.
