Tibet in the 1930s: Photographs from the Theos Bernard Archive

Exhibit - Photography | April 24 – July 23, 2014 every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday | 9 a.m.-5 p.m. |  Institute of East Asian Studies (2223 Fulton, 6th Floor)


Institute of East Asian Studies (IEAS), Center for Buddhist Studies


A selection of photographs that survive from the 1937 sojourn of American Theos Bernard capture images of a Tibet steeped in Buddhist tradition and feudal custom. Photographs include images of the monasteries, monks, and rituals of Tibetan Buddhism, as well as life in the villages and countrysides. The photographs, now in the collections of the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology at UC Berkeley, reveal the rich and diverse society of Tibet in its last years of independence.
