CHIRON HOUSE

SAT PURAN

Sat Puran worked as a photo researcher and archivist in New York for both Vogue and Travel & Leisure Magazine. A photographer in her own right, over the past twenty years, she traveled to Tibet and India on “yatras,” or spiritual pilgrimages, wielding her Mamiya RZ medium format film camera .

Given special access to palaces, monasteries and homes of the Dalai Lama which were founded in the 1400’s, she captures rare moments that beautifully archive this inner sanctum. Since the announcement by the Dalai Lama that this centuries old tradition may cease as we know it, these photos may provide the last glimpse into this cultural treasure.
