1978, Ladakh, India
Plate 68, 18x27
The people at this high altitude seemed to do many of the things I did at home. There was a road between the tiny village and the series of stupas, and the people would walk, sometimes with their children. They only walked, and quite often there was more than one person.
What I found strange was that for the effort, they seemed not to do much. They brought little backfrom the village and on some trips never entered the stupas but sat outside. Yet in this land beyond sound, they all seemed to have found contentment. All had found harmony in a land beyond time.
It almost seemed that they had found happiness in the silent beauty, while we need to find possible the same happiness in sound.
