INNER HARMONY is an artistic compilation of Kolkin’s powerful, sensitive images taken while immersed in Buddhist communities across Asia working primarily as a medical volunteer in under-resourced communities. For over a decade he photographed everyday life of Buddhist monastics and laypeople in Bhutan, Myanmar, China, Vietnam, India, Cambodia, Japan, Nepal and Taiwan, revealing keen insight into the otherwise hushed world of meditation and mindfulness. With his profound feeling for light and composition, Kolkin’s rare and intimate images capture the uniqueness of each contemplative moment, as well as the universal reach and inspiration of Buddhist practices. Offering singular images of Buddhist life from across contemporary Asia, INNER HARMONY documents and celebrates those who are quietly committed to cultivating a nurturing internal environment
where well-being can germinate.
