This exhibition is a selection of images that Rinchen has taken over a period of fifteen years when visiting her father’s homeland. It documents the struggles and celebrations of the Tibetan people living in Kham.
Born in Cambridge in 1981, Rinchen has been travelling to East Asia since she was two years old. In her work she explores an evolving culture, presenting a sensitive portrayal of home and heritage. A society often depicted as foreign or ‘other’, is here recorded by one to whom it is familiar; her images are a delicate balance between calm detachment and intimacy.
It is a work in progress, not unfinished, but a life-long endeavour.
