佛教文化和西藏遺產的最大寶藏隱藏在飆升的雪山,深谷和荒涼的沙漠之中。超過一個十年來,攝影師托馬斯·萊爾德(Thomas Laird)用超過十年時間遊走西藏高原的每一個角落,用鏡頭捕捉這片土地壯觀的佛教壁畫、景色崇高的浩瀚,錯綜複雜,更紀錄他們背後崇高的精神及情感。

Hidden amidst soaring snowy mountains, deep valleys, and desolate deserts are some of the greatest treasures of Buddhist culture and Tibetan heritage. For more than a decade, photographer Thomas Laird traveled the length, breadth, and far-flung corners of Tibet’s plateau to capture the land’s spectacular Buddhist murals in all their sublime vastness, intricacy, and their spiritual, emotional, and psychological Enrichment.

Laird利用了多圖像數碼攝影技巧編制了世界上第一個有關中國佛學藝術品的檔案。他的作品放置在10米闊的以實物大小的分辨率展示,供大家欣賞。這本令人驚嘆的出版物以超大型的形式組合了萊爾德的作品集,其中有六張摺頁,以包括金色在內的五種顏色作打印。Majestic Illumination擁有完整的壁畫和豐富的細節,讓讀者沉浸在這些珍貴,非凡的傑作中。

Deploying new multi-image digital photography, Laird compiled the world’s first archive of these artworks, some walls as wide as 10 meters, in life-size resolution. This breathtaking publication assembles Laird’s portfolio in extra-large format with six fold-outs, printed in five colors including gold. Featuring both complete murals and copious details, it immerses readers into these precious, extraordinary masterpieces.
