Thomas Laird. Murals of Tibet. Companion Book
This 528-page book from Thomas Laird was originally published in tandem with the landmark publication Murals of Tibet, illustrating the personal process of photographer Thomas Laird’s decade-long journey that resulted in the SUMO’s 2018 release. It contains detailed text on the precious murals’ spiritual significance by Buddhist writer and academic Robert Thurman, a visual index, and captions from experts Heather Stoddard and Jakob Winkler that shed light on the storylines and artistic context of each image.
